An Ocean Adventure, 29 January 2019

Guide Summary.

It was a great day to be out at sea, with 4 of the Marine Big 5 coming out to say hi. We began our trip by moving through to the Uilenkraalsmond Estuary,  where we took a quick stop before spotting some dolphins. We had 3 Indian Ocean Humpback Dolphins, which included Summer.

After spending some time watching the dolphins swim through crystal clear water, we moved on towards Slashfin where we got a few great views of some Copper Sharks. The visibility was great all through out the bay, so it was awesome to watch them swim below our boat. we finished off our tour with some African Penguins at Dyer Island before cruising through Shark Alley to do some Cape Fur Seal watching.

Daily Snaps.

We had great visibility today, which allowed us to watch the dolphins swim under the water.
