Humpback dolphins outside Kleinbaai! Marine Big 5 Daily Blog

Although it has been an overcast day with slight drizzle in between we had a great time at sea. Literally just outside Kleinbaai harbour we encountered two of the endangered Indian Ocean humpback dolphins, we spent some time watching them as they were very relaxed alongside our vessel Whale Whisperer.  Further along the coast we spotted some unusual bird, first we didn’t know what it was but after a closer look we saw it was a Great Crested Grebe. They are usually known to be in freshwater rather than the marine environment. After a stop at the shark cage diving boats, we saw some penguins at Dyer Island and plenty of Cape fur seals on Geyser Rock. We also covered deeper waters but it has been rather quiet out there.
