Marine Big 5 Daily Blog 08 November

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

Trip Summary 08 November 2023:

Another day out at sea with some amazing sightings ahead of us! Leaving Kleinbaai Harbour we cruised along the coastal areas and hoped for some more amazing encounters. As usual, we did not get disappointed. Several southern right whales were spotted throughout the day and our guests got some great looks at this beautiful species. On some of our trips, we were even lucky enough to have spotted either Bottlenose or humpback dolphins. Letting them be after spending some time with them we made our way over to the Shark cage diving vessels where we got a glimpse of our beloved Bronze Whaler sharks. Shortly after it was time to head over to Geyser Rock and Dyer Island. Several Cape fur seals showed up in front of the boat and of course, numerous seals were on the island relaxing. Before it was time to head back to Kleinbaai Harbour we stopped by Dyer Island to get some nice views of the endangered African Penguins.
