Our trip today started with a flock of Cape Cormorants just outside Kleinbaai harbour. Further down the coast we have been lucky to encounter some of the endangered Indian Ocean humpback dolphins. They were quite shallow, hunting in the surf but before we moved off, they came close by so we could get some great looks. Out in deeper water it has been fairly quiet with most seabirds heading far offshore but after some effort searching, we managed to find a Bryde’s whale. After a pass by at the Cape fur seal and penguins we were heading back to the coast to see some sharks before we returned back to Kleinbaai.

What species did we see today?
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.
