Daily Trip Update,15 December 2018

Guide Summary.

We had a fantastic time out at sea, spotting 4 members of our Marine Big 5 on a lovely day! We started off our tour with a sighting of an African Penguin in the water. It’s always great to see them out at sea as we sometimes struggle to point them out on the island. After getting a couple of nice photos of the birds, we then travelled on to see what else the area had in store for us.

We then caught up with South Africa’s rarest coastal cetacean, when some Indian Ocean Humpback Dolphins came up around the boat. These dolphins looked to be out fishing, so we cruised along with the, erupting with excitement every time we were lucky t have them surface.

We then took our daily stop at Slashfin where the shark sightings were nothing short of incredible. We got to see Copper Sharks here, and we had of all shades and sizes, these animals were really active and inquisitive, and we watched in awe as they spent time in the chum slick, surfacing as they investigated our operation. We then head on over tour our Cape Fur Seal Colony before returning to Kleinbaai Harbour.
