Whale of a time! Marine Big 5 Daily Blog

Today we were heading straight towards Danger Point and out into the deeper water where we have encountered a super friendly Bryde’s whale. These whales are usually known to be shy and elusive but this whale was very relaxed around our vessel and was showing off by turning around so we could see the belly and fluke. After having spent time with the whale and seeing it surface many times, we continued to the Cape Fur seal colony and Dyer Island where we also spotted lots of Giant Petrel. On our way home we stopped at the shark cage diving boat and slowly cruised along the coast back towards Kleinbaai.
