We had to launch from Gansbaai Harbour today due to tide, but certainly an exciting experience. This meant that we had to make our way around Dangerpoint Lighthouse. This lighthouse was erected after the HMS Birkenhead sank in 1852, which still today remains one of South-Africa’s worst maritime disaster. This was the first time in recorded history that the order was given for women and children to board the liferafts first. Today this command is known as the Birkenhead Drill. Our Marine Big 5 sightings today included Cape Fur seals on Geyser Rock, endangered African penguins on Dyer Island, Bronze Whaler sharks around our sister company, Marine Dynamics vessel and a Humpback dolphin cruizing through the swells in the shallows.
