It’s been a fun day out on the water in the company of our Marine Big 5 species. Although the sun didn’t make much of an appearance, the animals sure did. We had some really great encounters with our Southern right whales close to shore. Throughout the day we came across several different pairs of mothers and juveniles. On one of the trips we were lucky that one of these young whales approached our boat, and on another trip we got to watch an amazing show of a very active one that was repeatedly slapping its tail on the surface of the water. The shark activity was also very nice to watch, with plenty of Bronze whaler sharks gathering around our Slashfin doing the shark caging diving activity. All of our trips included a visit to the Cape fur seal colony on Geyser rock, and we also had some African penguins to Dyer Island. Our final Marine Big 5 member was the endangered Indian Ocean humpback dolphin, of which we saw a glimpse on the first trip in the morning, and then a much better look at a mother and calf later on in the day.
