Fins, feathers and flippers! Marine Big 5 daily blog

A sunny Saturday on sea for the Dyer Island Cruises crew and guests. We left harbour just before midday and made our way along the coastline to start our trip and it was here that we encountered our first sighting, some Indian ocean Humpback dolphins. Such a stunning sighting as we watched the three individuals porpoising along, appearing to be enjoying the beautiful day just as much as us. We left the dolphins and moved away from the coast towards our sister company, Marine Dynamics, who were shark cage diving in the Shallows. They happened to have a 4.5m female Great White in sight at that time and spent some time watching this animal cruise around just under the waters’ surface. Moving on with the tour, we made our way towards the Islands to see the Cape Fur seal inhabitants on Geyser Rock and the African penguins on Dyer Island and after some time spent with both we made our way into the deeper waters in the direction of Danger Point before making our way back to land.
