A Marine Big 5 Kinda Day! 2 December 2019

What a day! We had a jawsome morning when we stopped over at Slashfin to spot some sharks, we were lucky to see two species today, our beautiful Bronze Whaler shark as well as our spectacular Great White shark. While we took a short stop to look around, our trusty spotter Kira used his hawk eye vision and spotted a pod of lovely common dolphins feeding on a school of fish, shortly after which a Brydes whale was seen just a few meters behind the pod. Our Cape Fur seals were a delight swimming around shark alley and we’re seeing more and more pups born every day on Geyser Rock. The last stop was to catch a glimpse of our African Penguin on Dyer Island, we got to catch a glimpse of a few scattered amongst the Cape Cormorants. A very Marine Big 5 kinda day!
