We decided to try our luck again in the Franskraal area today and it paid off as we found two mother-calf pairs and a very friendly sub-adult!  One of the mother-calf duos were being very active, with the mother pushing her calf through the swells playfully and the calf rolling on its back.  We also had one sub-adult who kept popping up right beside our boat, even passing under the boat a couple times!  Just as we were about to head off to the Island system, to view the Cape Fur seals and search for some penguins, we had two Indo-Pacific Humpback dolphins join the trip who surprisingly stayed with us for a good while, considering how skittish they can be! Another successful day on the water…
