What an amazing start to the new month! Today we had it all – common dolphins to start the day, many Southern right whales and also our Cape fur seals, Bronze whaler sharks and African penguins. The dolphins were a nice surprise, as we don’t see them as often as the other Marine Big 5 members. The Southern right whales also made an impression today. We had at least 10 individuals off Pearly beach, including several young whales playing around in the bay. We were very lucky on some of our tours to see these young whales approaching our boat and sometimes leaping out of the water. To end the day, we even had the great luck of seeing an adult whale repeatedly jumping out of the water with its mouth open. It was an amazing sight that we will not forget any time soon.
