Marine Big 5 Adventures

The Tour

The start of a Sunny Saturday morning…

The weather was amazing, even the birds were chirping!

We headed down to the Kleinbaai harbor with our very excited guests for the day. Boarding our vessel Dream Catcher for a boat based marine big 5 tour.

We barely left the harbor and the crew already spotted our first sighting!

A Southern Right whale with her new born calf.

We decided to spend some quality time with the pair as they were in no rush to move away from us. Curious by nature, the gentle giants approached us.

The sound effects coming from the guests were enough to put a smile on anyone’s face. After nearly 30 minutes we headed off towards world famous Shark Alley and Dyer Island.

We spotted some endangered African Penguins near the shore line of the island and our guide on board discussed the island and informed the guest n some of the 27 bird species that inhabit it.

The Cape Fur seals, as usual, were right where we left the, on Geyser rock. Here we spotted The African Oyster catcher and Bank cormorants and Caspian terns as well.

The tide was too low for us to head back into Kleinbaai harbor and we made our way around Danger Point as the wind started picking up on sea.

A few splashes here and there as the guests smiles became bigger, embracing the full experience of being out at sea.

We at Dyer Island Cruises and Dyer Island Trust would like to take this opportunity as well to thank our guests for booking their boat based whale watching and Marine Big 5 experience with us.

Without your support, none of the work we do would be possible.
