Seabirds everywhere! Marine Big 5 Daily Blog

We used the weather gap this morning to head once again out to sea and we could have not chosen any better. Out of Kleinbaai harbour we set course to Danger Point and into deeper waters where we encountered a lot of different pelagic seabird species including White-chinned Petrel, European Storm Petrel, Sooty Shearwater and Cape Gannt. Further along he way we saw more bird species and spotted a Sabine’s Gull, they are usually seen further offshore and are one of the summer visitors. Arrived in Shark Alley we had time to watch the playful seal pups and got to see more Giant Petrels as we made our way to Dyer Island. After having seen some endangered African Penguins we made our way back to the coast. After a stop at the shark cage diving boat, a small pod of common dolphins appeared between the small waves.
