Marine Big 5 Daily Blog 27 March

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

Trip Summary 27 March 2024:

Welcoming our guests on Dream Catcher we are ready to head into another day out at sea! Leaving Kleinbaai Harbour behind us we made our way further into the bay. Heading towards the natural estuary we kept our eyes open to see what we might encounter today. Cruising down the coastal areas we made it to the Shallows, where the Shark cage diving companies operate. Passing by Marine Dynamics vessel Slashfin we could view the incredible Bronze Whaler sharks investigating divers in the cage and circling our boat. Once everyone got a good look we continued our journey along a reef system to Dyer Island. Just behind the island we stopped at the Cape fur seal colony and saw some thousand Cape fur seals. In the deeper waters were hundreds of Cape Gannets as well as other seabirds including an albatross. Just as we were heading around Danger Point we spotted a spout of a whale and managed to get a few looks at a Bryde’s whale.
