Common dolphins! Marine Big 5 daily blog

We had another sunny and calm day at sea but with great wildlife activity. The tour started with a nice drive along the coast towards the shark cage diving boats, where we got to see two great white sharks. After seeing some great activity from the great whites we moved to Dyer Island to see the African penguins and other seabirds that inhabit this nature reserve. Our next stop was planned to be the Cape fur seal colony on Geyser Rock but we had to postponed it for later on in the tour as Kira, our wildlife spotter, spotted a group of common dolphins a bit further out. These dolphins are always a treat to encounter. They have been bow riding our vessel and one individual was leaping out of the water a few times, making a great show. After watching these oceanic dolphins, we made it to the Cape fur seal colony. On our way home to Kleinbaai harbour we passed Danger Point light house and spotted a couple more African penguins in the water.
