Two Bryde’s whales! Marine Big 5 Daily Blog

The ocean was once again filled with life today! On route and passed Uilenkraalmond we had our first encounter with a juvenile African penguin before reaching the shark cage diving boats. There, a Bronze whaler shark was active at the surface passing the cage several times so we could get some great looks. At Geyser Rock and cruising through Shark Alley, we watched the Cape Fur seals. Many of the big males were posing in the sun, but always keeping an eye open for other males that might come to close. Out in the deeper water behind Dyer Island the ocean was filled with Cape Fur seals and other seabirds as well as Bryde’s whales and we have been extremely lucky to see two of them on today’s tour.
