Marine Big 5 daily blog

We had another perfect day at sea with almost no wind and swell. Due to spring low tide we launched slightly later than usual but this didn’t affect our sightings at all. Past a reef system and close to Pearly beach we spotted three pairs of Southern Right whales. Two were close to our vessel Dream Catcher and the other one was slowly swimming into our direction. One calf was truly in a playful mood and entertaining us the whole time with some tail and flipper slaps as well as leaping out of the water. Closer to Dyer Island we spotted some African penguins hiding between all the nesting Cape cormorants and the seals were once again playful in the waters of Shark Alley.
