Sunny Sunday cruise! Marine Big 5 Daily Blog

Today’s tour started with some excitement around the shark cage diving boats, having seen two different Great White sharks. One was quite curious and came several times closer to investigate our vessel. After some great sightings we moved on to Dyer Island, where we saw a couple of the endangered African Penguin and thousands of Cape Cormorants heading out to sea. At Geyser Rock were plenty of Cape Fur seals we could get a closer look at. As it was such a beautiful day we ventured behind the islands into deeper water and were lucky to find a humpback whale after a little bit of search. Having had some looks at the whale we moved on and found another individual, showing off by lifting its fluke up before taking a deeper dive. Heading back towards the harbour we were astonished to find two Bryde’s whales, a mother and her calf as well as more Cape Cormorants. What a great time at sea!
