Beautiful day at sea! Marine Big 5 daily blog

After a cruise along the coastline we were heading passed Dye Island into deeper waters where we spotted two adult African penguins and a couple of birds passing us in flight. Just before we arrived in Shark Alley we saw a lot of giant petrels feasting on some food. Seeing these large scavenging birds is always a great treat. Shark Alley was full of playful seals cooling down in the sunny weather. And as per usual many more were lazy and laying on Geyser Rock. Once closer to Dyer Island and in Sponge Bay we have been fortunate to see a lot of African penguins on the rocks posing for some pictures. On the way back we stopped at the shark cage diving boats in the shallows and have been lucky to see a four-meter great white shark swimming passed our vessel. All in all, it has been a very nice day at sea.
