Humpback Whale! Marine Big 5 Daily Blog

It has been a while since we were able to head out to sea and were super excited as soon as we launched from Kleinbaai harbour. From Kleinbaai we set course straight towards Dyer Island as we had four African penguins on board that had been at the African Penguin and Seabird Sanctuary for rehabilitation and were now ready to be released again. After we successfully released the penguins, we were heading around the island to se the Cape Fur seals. The Cape Fur seal pups, born in December last year, are truly getting big now and almost ready to hunt for their own food in the deeper waters of the bay. As it has been such a nice day with perfect weather conditions, we decided to head behind the islands and were astonished to find two humpback whales. The whales were coming up several times between some longer dives and we managed to get some really nice looks. On the way back we were heading along the coast past the beautiful coastline. What a great day at sea, we could have not asked for a better time.
