Marine Big 5 Daily Blog 08 June

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

Trip Summary 08 June 2024:

Having two trips ahead of us today we welcomed both groups aboard Dream Catcher. Leaving Kleinbaai Harbour behind us we headed further into our bay on the lookout for any marine wildlife in the area. Once arrived in the Shallows, where the local shark cage diving companies operate, we were able to get some nice views of the incredible Bronze whaler sharks, active as always. We of course couldn’t miss passing by Dyer Island, home of the endangered African Penguins. A few of the penguins could be seen on the rocks. To say the least, Geyser Rock was quite busy today. Numerous Cape fur seals on the island were watching us pass by whereas some others were either very curious and coming closer to the boat to investigate or just cooling down in Shark Alley. While in deeper waters we were accompanied by several pelagic bird species searching for some fish underneath the surface. In these deeper water we managed to get a brief look of a Bryde’s whale and later on a a humpback whale.
