Marine Big 5 Daily Blog 21 February

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

Trip Summary 21 February 2024:

As usual, we left Kleinbaai Harbour behind us and headed further into the bay excited about what we might encounter throughout the day! Several sharks were seen around the shark cage diving vessels once we arrived in the Shallows. Our beloved Bronze whaler sharks were active, investigating the divers in the cage and circling our boat, which as always left our guests in awe. The island system could of course not be missed. The endangered African Penguins were close to the beach sitting on top of some boulders, whereas several other bird species living on the island were out and about. Heading towards Geyser Rock, some Cape fur seals were already in the cool waters of Shark Alley and some were sunbathing on the island. Throughout the trips, we headed into deeper waters as well and were fortunate to encounter a Bryde’s whale and several penguins at sea!
