Bryde’s Whale! Marine Big 5 Daily Blog

As usual we launched from Kleinbaai harbour and were heading straight towards the shark cage diving boats as we didn’t want to miss out on the opportunity of seeing a Great white shark. Arrived at Dyer Island we spotted a few penguins and some Cape Cormorant lined up on the rocks. Next we made a turn through Shark Alley and watched the Cape Fur seal. Halfway passed the colony they somehow got spooked on the island and hundreds of Cape Fur seals started running into the water.  Out in the bay we have been lucky to see more penguins, a raft of approximately 30 and while watching them we spotted a humpback whale and two Bryde’s whale further off. One of the Bryde’s whale was very relaxed alongside the vessel and came up several time close by.
