Marine Big 5 Daily Blog 26 November

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

Trip Summary 26 November 2023:

Heading into a new sunny and beautiful day. Leaving Kleinbaai Harbour behind us we started the trips off with some humpback dolphins on two of our tours and a visit to our sister company Marine Dynamics and their shark cage diving boat Slashfin. Several Bronze Whaler sharks were gathered in front of the cage entertaining the shark cage divers and our guests alike. After some time with them, we moved on to Pearly Beach a coastal area nearby. Both trips encountered a southern right whale pair! The whales were offering some amazing views and left our guests in awe. Letting them be we moved to our Island system. Shortly after we arrived in Shark Alley watching seals playing in the water and sunbathing on Geyser Rock. Before heading back to Kleinbaai Harbour we of course stopped by the endangered African Penguins sitting on Dyer Island.
