All of the Marine Big 5! Marine Blog 5 Daily Blog 09 January

After some wind over the past two days, we were finally able to head back out to sea and what a great trip it has been. After seeing bronze whaler sharks in the shallow waters at the cage diving boats, we were heading towards the islands but made a stop first for a pod of common dolphins. It was such a great sighting as the water visibility was fantastic so we could see the dolphins just below us bow riding. At Dyer Island we spotted the endangered African penguin and plenty of Cape Fur seals on Geyser Rock. Beyond the islands in deeper water, we came across a Bryde’s whale and the animal was very relaxed just travelling alongside our vessel. And before entering Kleinbaai harbour we spotted another penguin at sea.
