Marine Big 5 Daily Blog 26 February

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

Trip Summary 26 February 2022:

After the launch from Kleinbaai harbour we were heading towards Danger Point, out there we saw plenty of terns feeding on some smaller baitfish as well as a sunfish. We slowly made our way through deeper waters towards the island and managed after quite a bit of search to find a Bryde’s whale. At the islands, we enjoyed seeing the Cape Fur seals and some penguins. Before heading back we stopped at the shark cage diving boat and found two Ostrich on the beach.
