Sunfish surprise! Marine Big 5 daily blog

The day started rainy but luckily it cleared by the time we were launching our vessel Dream Catcher into a calm and beautiful sea. At Slashfin we got to see two beautiful bronze whaler sharks through the clear water and even a seal joined in to have a closer look at what was happening. On the way to Dyer Islands we picked up a loose piece of kelp floating around and had a better look at the seaweed that’s growing all along the coast in this area. Just before reaching Dyer Island we encountered an African penguin and got to see even more on the island itself. The cape fur seals were playful as usual and other were lazy on the beaches of Geyser Rock. Traveling around Geyser Rock into deeper water we were delighted to find a sunfish, a special sighting we don’t get to see very often.
