Our Southern right whale sightings were really good again today. We had several different individuals around the area of Pearly Beach, including our white brindle whale from yesterday. We could see the contrast of this rare white whale really well alongside the dark adult that has just some grey spots on her back. On one of our trips we were even lucky to see a big mother Southern right whale breaching several times. Indian Ocean humpback dolphins made an appearance on two of our tours today, and although the sea wasn’t the best for penguin viewing, we did manage to have some sightings of them on all our tours. Our Cape fur seals put on their entertaining display of cute and funny behaviours on Geyser rock and its surrounding waters, and last but not least the beautiful Bronze whaler sharks topped off all our tours today.

What species did we see today?

Humpback dolphins are an endangered species, with small populations living very close to shore, typically in water less than 25m deep and an average home range of 120km. Their proximity to land makes these animals particularly vulnerable to human influence.
