Daily Trip Update, 6 December 2019

After the mist cleared up, we launched our vessel Dream Catcher from Kleinbaai harbour. As usual we took a slow cruise passed the lagoon at Uilenkraalsmond and further along the coast to search for humpback dolphins. We have been lucky to encounter two of the dolphins traveling together alongside the boat. One of the dolphins is a well-known visitor to the bay we have encountered it in 2011 for the first time and from 2014 onwards regularly. Further along we made a stop at our sister company’s vessel Slashfin where we saw numerous bronze whaler sharks. Arrived at Dyer Island we spotted African penguins, Swift terns, various cormorant species and many more. After watching plenty of fur seals on Geyser Rock we were heading into deeper water before making the way back to Kleinbaai harbour. Seeing four out the Marine Big 5 was truly a moment we cherish!

Nap time!

We had a seal playing with some kelp this morning

The males on the island can get quite territorial

Can you spot the Penguins?Sometimes we have to look hard to find them
