Today we had two trips launching from Kleinbaai harbour into a bay with clear water and a slight breeze from the south east. Both trips have been great but the second one was rather exciting as we have been lucky to find some southern right whales. Close to Uilenkraalsmond we spotted a mother and her calf swimming in the shallow waters that were accompanied for some time by a humpback dolphin. On both trips however, we saw bronze whaler sharks, African penguins and plenty of Cape fur seals. Every day we are heading out to see the Cape fur seal colony on Geyser Rock we spot more and more seal pups, what a great time to see these marine mammals.

What species did we see today?
Cape fur seal African Penguin Bronze Whaler Shark Cape Cormorant Southern Right Whale 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.
