Whale tail! Marine Big 5 Daily Blog

This morning we launched from Gansbaai due to the spring tide. Once around Danger Point we encountered a southern right whale mother and her calf close to the coast and further along the coast another whale that was quite curious and approached us several times.On the second trip for the day we had a very playful calf just past Uilenkraalsmond that was lifting it’s fluke high up in the air while it’s mother stayed submerged for longer periods of time. In the afternoon on our third trip we spotted more whales in the shallows and along the Clyde. On all trips we obviously made a stop in Shark Alley to see the Cape fur seals, which was a fantastic sight with the crystal clear waters. There has also been some small bait fish in the bait that attracted rafts of penguins and on two trips we also got lucky to see some sharks.
