Most of our day has been overcast with some light drizzle, with a couple of minutes sunshine on our second trip. Both trips were fille with marine life, we saw a couple of Bryde’s whales and plenty of feeding seabirds in front of Kleinbaai. On the second tour, some humpback dolphins crossed our way while cruising along the coast line and just after the sun came out, we spotted a humpback whale on our way to Dyer Island. The island was packed with thousands of Cape cormorants and many more were leaving the island.
What species did we see today?
Brydes Whale African Penguin Cape Cormorant 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.
