Whale, seals and penguins! Marine Big 5 Daily Blog

The weather was perfect for a day out at sea, the sun was shining and only a light breeze was blowing. After launching from Kleinbaai harbour we set sail towards Dyer Island, but made a stop halfway to have a look at some African penguins out at sea. Arrived at Dyer Island we saw more of these endangered birds as well as Giant petrels sitting in between kelp. Just around the corner I Shark Alley we saw thousands of Cape Fur seals, most gathered on Geyser Rock. The seal pups are also slowly growing up but stand out nicely with their black fur and obviously small size. Behind the island we have been lucky to encounter a Bryde’s whale, which was traveling relaxed alongside our boat.
