Sharks, Seabirds and Seals! Marine Big 5 daily blog

The team and guests headed out of Kleinbaai harbour and made their way along the coast on the lookout for any sign of dolphins, with none in sight, we made a right and turned our attention to the sharks, with the lucky addition to our sightings of a Great White shark. Moving on through the Clyde and taking the chance to show our passengers the expansive kelp forests in the bay before making our way to Sponge Bay, an area next to Dyer Island where we have the chance to spot the African penguins on land, amongst the other birds, including the Cape Cormorants. There were some other interesting bird sightings seen in Shark Alley with four Giant Petrels present and clearly up to something, as they actively engaged and pestered a Cape Fur seal pup in the water. A closer look at the Cape Fur seal inhabitants on Geyser Rock brought our trip to an end before we made the journey back to shore.
