A picturesque day on Whale Whisperer as we headed out on our Marine Big 5 adventure.

Shockingly our first sighting was Bryde’s Whale in the shallows, this species tends to feed behind the island and will only come into the bay to feed on small fish. These whales can be quite difficult to spot as the don’t spend much time at the surface, luckily this whale did provide us with some excellent views. As we were watching the whale, we spotted three African Penguins, two adults and juvenile. These little guys were quite skittish of our vessel often diving as we came closer, nonetheless we still managed to see quite a few on Dyer Island itself. After visiting the Island we headed around to shark alley to say hello to our Cape Fur Seal colony on Geyser Rock. The seals, playful as ever, put on an outstanding show, porpoising out of the water next to us, while also causing a commotion on land. This was to be out last sighting of the day before we headed back to the harbour. A great day at sea filled with some great sightings of our local wildlife.
