Marine Big 5 Daily Blog 01 February

Whale Watching near Cape Town, South Africa Welcome to Gansbaai, home of the Marine Big 5.

Trip Summary 01 February 2023:

We had a beautiful sunny and calm day at sea. Today’s tour started with a sighting of an African Penguin just shortly after leaving the harbor. Further along the coast we stopped at the shark cage diving boat and had some fantastic looks at the Bronze Whaler sharks. Out in the bay, we passed by Dyer Island for more penguins and stopped in the famous Shark Alley for the Cape fur seals before continuing our journey through the deep waters. Although it has been quiet in the deeper waters behind the island we saw a variety of marine life throughout the tour and had a great time at sea!
