Today’s weather cleared up by the time we launched and we had a fantastic time at sea. Shortly after leaving the harbour we spotted a Cape fur seal throwing its pray through the air as well as several groups of penguins. And as we were driving to Uilenkraalsmond we spotted a cape Gannet and some humpback dolphins in the surf. We spend some time watching the dolphins catching fish before continuing the tour to the shark cage diving boats. At Dyer Island we got to see more penguins and seabirds and didn’t miss out on a stop at the Cape fur seal colony.

What species did we see today?
African Penguin Cape fur seal Bronze Whaler Shark Cape Cormorant 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.
