An Exciting Day Of Sightings, 18 November 2019

Our day today was full of surprises, with the mouth of the estuary being recently opened, we are seeing the marine animals being more active around the bay. We were able to see 4 of our marine big 5 today on both our trips. We were able to catch exceptional glances of out Brydes whale, our Cape Fur Seal, the African Penguin and our beautiful Bronze Whaler Shark. The first trip was also really lucky to have encountered two species of whale; our Southern Right as well as our Brydes Whale. The birds were giving us great displays and we even came across a mega flock of Cape Cormorants, we encountered some Giant Petrels, Little Egrets, Sub-Antarctic Skua, White Chinned Petrel and a few species of Tern. We enjoyed every bit of our day and had a fantastic day out at sea.
