Whales! Marine Big 5 Daily Blog

The weather has been beautiful today with just a light but warm wind. Out in the bay we first spotted two humpback whales, they were taking their time to surface but we got a couple of great looks at them. While we were waiting for them to surface again, we saw a Shy Albatross gliding passed our vessel. On our way to Dyer Island we spotted another whale, this time it was a Bryde’s whale, how lucky to see two species of whale in just one trip. After we watched the Cape Fur seals on Geyser Rock and some African penguin on Dyer Island we were heading towards Pearly Beach where we was a sunfish just below the surface. On our way back we passed by the shark cage diving boats and got to see a big Great white shark swimming passed the cage and trying to get hold of the seal decoy.
