We couldn’t ask for a better time at sea, the weather was perfect and the tour was willed with great sightings of all Marine Big 5. Shortly after leaving from Kleinbaai harbour we encountered two penguins and a whole lot of Cape Cormorants, that were followed with great looks at the bronze whaler sharks by the shark cage diving boat. In Pearly Beach we first spend some time around southern right whales and then were lucky to see some of the endangered humpback dolphins travelling past. After a good look at the elusive dolphins, we spotted more southern right whales down the bay. We also took our time to see the Cape fur seals on Geyser Rock and more penguins at Dyer Island.

What species did we see today?
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.
