Jumping into the new year with some awesome sightings. Our trips were lucky to have spotted 4 of the Marine big 5 today with a great look at the endangered Indian Ocean Humpback Dolphin, the beautiful Bronze Whaler Shark, our playful Cape Fur Seals on Geyser Rock and of course our little African Penguin. We would like to wish our guests a Happy and Prosperous New Year and we can’t wait to see what animal sightings the new year holds.

What species did we see today?
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.
