Monday fun day at sea! Marine Big 5 Daily Blog

Today we used the weather gap in the morning to head out for a Marine Big 5 tour. On our way we had a couple of cormorants flying passed us towards Kleinbaai. Arrived in the Pearly Beach area we were scanning the bay for marine life and found a juvenile penguin popping its head out the water close to our boat Whale Whisperer. Albeit searching the area thoroughly we were unable to find some Southern Right whales, but we had a great sighting of a Bryde’s whale instead, which our spotter saw in a bit of deeper water. At the Dyer Island ecosystem we saw more African penguins and plenty of Cape Fur seals on Geyser Rock. Its a great time of the year to visit the seal colony and to see all the new born pups. Unfortunately, we have some wind picking up this afternoon that will continue through the whole of tomorrow but we are already excited to go to sea again when the weather clears up.
