Today we had an early morning trip due to some wind that picked up later and it was filled with great sightings. After launching from Kleinbaai we were heading along the coast and stopped at the shark cage diving boats to see some bronze whaler sharks. On our way to Pearly Beach, we encountered some whales along a reef system and spotted more closer to Pearly Beach itself. After some great time observing these gentle giants, we moved on to the Cape fur seal colony. And just before heading back to Kleinbaai we stopped closer to Dyer Island and saw some penguins posing on the rocks.

What species did we see today?
Southern Right Whale African Penguin Cape fur seal Bronze Whaler Shark Indian Ocean Humpback Dolphin
Humpback dolphins are an endangered species, with small populations living very close to shore, typically in water less than 25m deep and an average home range of 120km. Their proximity to land makes these animals particularly vulnerable to human influence.
