Marine Big 5 Daily Blog 10 July

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

Trip Summary 10 July 2023:

Quite a busy day we had today out at sea, meeting lots of people, but also encountering so many whales and other wildlife out there. Today we were lucky enough to see two different species off whales: Southern Right and Humpback whales. Only the first trip we’re lucky enough to see a Southern Right whale, where is everyone got to enjoy the humpbacks. As always, all the trips got to go and visit the island system with lively Cape Fur seals in the water, and lazy ones resting on Geyser Rock, managed to spot quite a few African Penguins on Dyer Island, and most of us saw some glimpses of bronze whaler sharks by Slashfin in the Swallows. All in all an absolute gem of a day!
