After a windy day yesterday, we were again able to head to sea. Along the coast and past Uilenkraalsmond we spotted first some penguins as well as four endangered humpback dolphins. They even decide to approach our vessel and were leaping out of the water a couple of times before they moved off again into the surf. We than also continued towards the shark cage diving boats to see some bronze whaler sharks. Unfortunately, it has been quiet in the Pearly Beach area and in deeper water and we were unable to find the whales. And before returning to Kleinbaai we passed the Cape fur seal colony, Dyer Island and continued our search for whales, but unsuccessfully.

What species did we see today?
Bronze Whaler Shark Cape Cormorant Cape fur seal African Penguin 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.
