Marine Big 5 Daily Blog 01 March

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

Trip Summary 01 March 2022:

Just outside Kleinbaai harbour, we came across thousands of Cape Cormorants, what a spectacular sight. Next, we were heading along the coast to the shark cage diving boats and saw a few bronze whaler sharks moving gracefully through the clear water. Out in deeper waters, it has been rather quiet but we were lucky to see a European Storm Petrel being released that was at the African Penguin and Seabird Sanctuary. Around Dyer Island we had a great sight of penguins, Giant Petrel and plenty of Cape fur seals around Geyser Rock.
