Marine Big 5 Daily Blog 11 January

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

Trip Summary 11 January 2023:

We had another calm day in the bay and were lucky to see all of the Marine Big 5. Our first sighting was of three humpback dolphins we spotted close to the shore before visiting the shark cage diving boats to see the bronze whaler shark. Arrived at Dyer Island we watched the seabirds and penguins before moving on to the Cape fur seal colony and the famous Shark Alley. In the deeper water of the bay we found a Bryde’s whale and later on had another encounter with a Bryde’s whale mother and calf pair, how lucky.
