Marine Big 5 Daily Blog 12 February

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

Trip Summary 12 February 2023:

As usual, we were first heading along the coast and first made a stop at the shark cage diving boats to see the Bronze whaler sharks. Not long after leaving the sharks behind we spotted a couple of common dolphins that were hunting for some fish but also came closer to investigate the boat.  As we were moving away from the common dolphins we spotted two Indian Ocean humpback dolphins, how lucky to see two different species of dolphins in one tour! At the islands, we saw some penguins and watched the Cape fur seals in Shark Alley. Unfortunately, the deeper waters were quiet today and we returned back to Kleinbaai.
