Albatross and humpback whale! Marine Big 5 Daily Blog

It has a been a perfect morning out at sea. The light has been great for photographs and the animals were just everywhere, especially the pelagic seabirds. As soon as we launched from Kleinbaai harbour we made our way to Danger Point where we spotted a few White-chinned Petrel. Further along the way to Dyer Island we encountered a humpback whale, breaching once for us and then travelling relaxed alongside the vessel. While waiting for the whale to come up we had the opportunity to take photos of Shy Albatross gliding past and a few more bird species around. At Dyer Island we managed to see the some of the endangered African Penguin and Cape Cormorant. And as always it has been a joy watching all the Cape Fur seals in Shark Alley and on Geyser Rock.
