Shortly after we left Kleinbaai harbour we spotted some of the endangered Indian Ocean humpback dolphins close to shore. The dolphins were surfacing close by so we could get some great looks at this shy and elusive species. After a visit at the shark cage diving boats and a brief sight of a bronze whaler sharks we moved on to Dyer Island to see penguins. At Geyser Rock we spotted plenty of Cape Fur seals, especially a lot of seal pups that were gathering close to the water of the famous Shark Alley.

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.
