Dolphins! Marine Big 5 Daily Blog

After some strong winds we were finally able to head out to sea. After leaving Kleinbaai harbour we set course towards Danger Point and into deeper waters where we spotted two groups of the African Penguin and a Bryde’s whale. After having had a look around and scanning the area we spotted a couple of birds in the distance and decided to head this way, as bird usually are good indicators for fish that might attract other marine life and we definitely weren’t disappointed. As we approached carefully, we saw hundreds of seabirds, just to name few – Sooty Shearwater, Shy Albatross, Storm Petrels and many more. In the same location there were also some seals and lots of common dolphins having a feast. We could have not asked for any better. On our way to the Cape Fur seal colony, we had another look at a Bryde’s whale.  Before returning to Kleinbaai we passed the shark cage diving boats in the shallow waters along the coast. What a fantastic day at sea!
