Humpback whale and common dolphins! Marine Big 5 Daily Blog

Today has been another day for the crew and guests alike which we will remember for a long time. We took the same rout on both trips first passed Danger Point and through the deeper waters of the bay to Dyer Island and Geyser Rock before slowly making our way back to Kleinbaai. On today’s first tour we spotted three humpback whales travelling along side each other before spotting hundred of white splashes further off, which turned out to be some common dolphins heading our way. It has been such a fantastic encounter seeing the dolphins travelling alongside us, we even could get a great look at them in the water as we head great visibility out there in the bay. before we reached Geyser Rock, we came across another two humpback whales also travelling towards southeast. On the second tour we spotted one humpback whale truly showing off with several breached and flipper slaps before taking longer dives. What a great sighting, we don’t get to see every day!
