What a beautiful day it was, with no wind, calms seas and all of the Marine Big 5. Close to Uilenkraalsmond we spotted two humpback dolphins and also some southern right whales. After stopping with them for a bit we continued and encountered more whales closer to shore. We had a fantastic time observing the whales in this beautiful weather before moving on to the shark cage diving boat. Arrived at Dyer Island we spotted a group of nine penguins at sea and more sea birds on the island and at Geyser Rock we got to see the Cape fur seals.
What species did we see today?
Cape fur seal African Penguin Southern Right Whale Indian Ocean Humpback Dolphin
Humpback dolphins are an endangered species, with small populations living very close to shore, typically in water less than 25m deep and an average home range of 120km. Their proximity to land makes these animals particularly vulnerable to human influence.
