Whale of a time and a rainbow! Marine Big 5 Daily Blog

Just before we were about to launch a slight rain shower moved over Kleinbaai, but it cleared up quickly and the clouds were opening up as we were launching and heading to sea. Just outside the harbour we saw a couple of feeding terns and other seabirds. Further along the way we spotted two Bryde’s whales and a third one on our way to Dyer Island. The Bryde’s whale was so relaxed around our vessel, even swimming upside down. After such an amazing encounter we continued to the island but were unable to reach it immediately as we spotted some more marine wildlife along the way, three humpback whales breaching several times and slapping their extremely long flippers onto the surface and as we were about to head off, we had a brief look at some sunfish. Cruising through shark Alley we were watching the Cape Fur seals as a beautiful rainbow started to appear on the sky. And on our way back we have been lucky to see a Great white shark at the cage diving boats. We had a awesome day at sea, which we will cherish for long time!
