After a couple of days on land due to some strong winds we were finally able to head back out to sea and it was great. This morning’s trip was all about dolphins, shortly after leaving Kleinbaai harbour we encountered a humpback dolphin that caught a fish for breakfast and after a visit by the shark cage diving boats we encountered more of the humpback dolphins. Next we cruised past the islands for the Cape fur seals and penguins. On the way back to Kleinbaai, we spotted splashes in the distance and were delighted to see more dolphins, this time some common dolphins. On our second tour we tried to find the dolphins but were unfortunately unsuccessful. However, we still had some great looks at all the Cape fur seals, African penguins and bronze whaler sharks.

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