"First time a whale at a glance! Fantastic"
"Lovely Trip! Thank You! Whales, seals, penguins <3"
"First time and it was awesome would love to come again <3"
We saw a Bryde’s whale today! Unlike our Humpback and Southern Right whales, the Bryde’s whales in our area do not have a set migration route, although they can still travel long distances. They are a baleen species, meaning that they do not have teeth in their mouth, but baleen plates trapping the food and filter out the water. They are rorqual whales that have throat pletes, extending like a balloon, increasing their food intake. These whales follow schooling fish such as sardine and anchovies, giving us the opportunity to view these magnificent species whenever we have fish travelling through the bay.
While visiting our sister company, Marine Dynamics, at their shark cage diving vessel, Slashfin, we had the opportunity to view Bronze Whaler sharks. Our bay is one of the only places in the world to view these species during a shark cage diving our Marine Big 5 tour. Over to Dyer Island to view some endangered African penguins and past neighbouring island, Geyser Rock, to view the roughly 60000 Cape fur seals made for a wonderful marine adventure.
