Although it has been overcast for the day, we had fantastic sightings of all Marine Big 5. After a visit at our sister company who does the shark cage diving, we managed to find a small pod of four humpback dolphins in the surf. After watching them for a couple of minutes the dolphin moved out into a bit deeper waters and we could get some fantastic looks. Further along the way and in deep water we spotted a Bryde’s whale and after a visit to the Cape fur seal colony we encountered some penguins at sea and on Dyer Island.

What species did we see today?
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.
