A beautiful morning that started out a bit cloudy with some great sightings! Cruising along the shoreline, we came across our Humpback Dolphins that were enjoying the surf in the shallow waters. The Bronze Whaler Sharks did not disappoint when we got to the shark cage diving vessels and were very active around the cage today. As we made our way into deeper water to look out for some whale, we were able to spot some beautiful Terns that were flying about. After a few looks around we headed to the islands to visit our Cape Fur Seals that were swimming around shark alley, cooling down. We ended the trip at Dyer Island to catch a glimpse of our African Penguin and spotted a few that were standing on the beach, taking in the sun before we headed back to Kleinbaai Harbour.
What species did we see today?
Bronze Whaler Shark Indian Ocean Humpback Dolphin
Humpback dolphins are an endangered species, with small populations living very close to shore, typically in water less than 25m deep and an average home range of 120km. Their proximity to land makes these animals particularly vulnerable to human influence.
