A five out of five day on the sea for the Dyer Island Cruises team and guests as we saw sharks, seals, penguins, whales and a dolphin. We made our way slowly through the Shallows to meet up with our sister company, Marine Dynamics, who were busy shark cage diving. We happened to arrive at the right time and saw a Great White shark launch itself out of the water. With a great shark sighting we moved on with the tour in the direction of the Islands, at which we watched the ever interesting Cape Fur seals and the African penguins on Dyer Island. To finish off the trip we were so fortunate to see Bryde’s whales moving through the deeper waters and a Humpback dolphin.
What species did we see today?
Great white sharks Brydes Whale Cape fur seal African Penguin Indian Ocean Humpback Dolphin
Humpback dolphins are an endangered species, with small populations living very close to shore, typically in water less than 25m deep and an average home range of 120km. Their proximity to land makes these animals particularly vulnerable to human influence.
