Giant petrels everywhere! Marine Big 5 daily blog

On our usual rout along the shallow waters close to shore we haven been once again very lucky to find an Indian Ocean humpback dolphin. Although it was just one adult, we spotted it was a great sighting as the dolphin decided to approach our vessel a little closer. After some great looks at the dolphin we moved on to the shark cage diving vessels where we saw a bronze whaler shark passing und the boat. On the way to Dyer Island we made two stops to view African penguins both sightings were an adult and a juvenile, it’s always great to see them out at sea! Today Geyser Rock was a lot more packed with Cape fur seals than the last few days and we counted 18 Giant petrels in Shark Alley resting on the surface.
