Penguins, seals and a sunfish! Marine Big 5 Daily Blog

After a couple of no sea days, we still had some swell coming through and some wind but we had a great sighting of a raft of African penguin on our way along the De Clyde. We also saw a couple of different seabirds, including Shy Albatross, Giant Petrel and a whole bunch of Swift Terns feeding on a small bait ball. Closer to Dyer Island we spotted more penguins and saw thousands of Cape Fur seals on Geyser Rock. Before heading back to the harbour we made a turn passed Geyser Rock into deeper waters and have been lucky to find a sunfish.
