Humpback dolphin! Marine Big 5 Daily Blog 01 December

Today was another sunny day with just a light breeze, that was picking up throughout the day. After our usual stop close to Uilenkraalsmond we were lucky to find one of the endangered humpback dolphins. The dolphin was very relaxed around our vessel and even approached us so we could get some really great looks at this usually shy and elusive species. At the shark cage diving boats, we also managed to see some dorsal fins of bronze whaler sharks surfacing as they passed the cage. In Pearly Beach it was fairly quiet today but the famous waters of Shark Alley were busy with plenty of Cape fur seals having a swim whilst many more were on Geyser Rock. We also start seeing a lot of seal pups, today a small group was gathering close to the waters edge. And before returning to Kleinbaai we spotted a couple of penguins on Dyer Island.
