Marine Big 5 Daily Blog 17 April

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

Trip Summary 17 April 2023:

On today’s trip, there was a little mist in the bay creating a beautiful backdrop on our journey out of Kleinbaai Harbour. On the way out to sea, we were escorted by numerous Subantarctic Skuas, one of whom hitched a ride on Dream Catcher! As we cruised through the shallow coastal waters we were incredibly lucky to spot the endangered Indian Ocean humpback dolphins! After this, we headed over to our shark cage diving vessel, Slashfin, where we got some great looks at the Bronze Whaler sharks. Over at Dyer Island, we were able to spot the endangered African penguins on land, and in the world-famous Shark Alley, we enjoyed the 60,000-strong Cape fur seal colony on Geyser Rock!
