A Marine Big 5 Tour, 21 July 2019

Today's Best Photographs.

An Indian Ocean Humpback Dolphin on a beautiful, calm day.

We had 3 Indian Ocean Humpback Dolphins around today, a mom with a calf and then this handsome fella.

African Penguins bobbing around on trip 1.

Seal surf Sunday.

Heading out to sea.

Some fun in the cold Atlantic.

A Six Gill Hagfish, which is a super cool sight. Hagfish are jaw-less fish, the most primitive fish in the world!

A little African Penguin on Trip 2.

Lots of African Penguins at a bait ball.

We pulled up just as the fish had disappeared.

A beautiful Humpback Whale tail. each one is unique like a finger print.

We had 2 Humpback Whales moving along with us today.

These whales were super relaxed and heading east.

Humpback Whales can reach the size of our vessel, Dream Catcher and weight in at 40 tons.

Moving with Gansbaai Mountain in the background.

Nothing quite like a Humpback Whale on a calm day.

look at that beautiful tail.

This tail is completely white below, whilst the other whale it was travelling with had far more grey.

When you see the tail of the whale, it could be indicative of a deeper dive.

Do you see the difference?

A baby seal scratching the face.

Check out the little seal who’s flying.

Loving that surge.

It’s so cute to watch them surf.

This young gentlemen really wanted to see the Humpback Whales, we’re so thrilled that we made his dreams come true.

A great White Shark!
