Whales and birds! Marine Big 5 Daily Blog

We had another ocean adventure on Christmas day. Close inshore we saw some Storm petrel, coming in with some westerly wind. These little pelagic birds are often overlooked because of their size weighing only around 20g. Further out in the deeper water behind the islands we spotted a very friendly Bryde’s whale coming up close to our vessel Whale Whisperer. After seeing the Cape Fur seal colony and the endangered African penguin we slowly made our way back towards Kleinbaai harbour.
