Marine Big 5 Daily Blog 29 February

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

Trip Summary 29 February 2024:


We had a beautiful sunny and calm day here in Kleinbaai and set sail into the bay this morning. Along the coast, we were lucky to spot an endangered Indian Ocean humpback dolphin that was traveling fast toward Uilenkraalsmond. Next, we stopped the shark cage diving boats and saw some Bronze Whaler sharks before we continued to a reef where we had a special encounter with a rather rare hammerhead shark. Out in the deep, we came across two common dolphins. Arrived in Shark Alley we watched the Cape fur seals and had a closer look at Dyer Island and the penguins. Before we reached Kleinbaai harbour we came across more penguins at sea. What a beautiful day to remember!
