The wind today tried to dampen our spirits, and although it made us all a little salty, we had a great tour out on the water.
We spent time with two different pairs of southern right whale mothers with calves, as well as seeing the lone calf once again out there. This calf still looks quite full of energy and gave us an amazing close look when it came over to the boat. We also got to see a nice group of Indian Ocean humpback dolphins, including a young calf, as they travelled along in the shallows.
Over by the islands we saw a large group of terns over Dyer Island and the 60,000 seals (give or take a few) on geyser rock.
One of the highlights of the day was two close looks at our critically endangered African penguins. One adult came very close to the boat, checking us out, while another pair of an adult and juvenile also gave us nice looks.
