Whales, Sharks, Penguins, Seals! Marine Big 5 Daily Blog 13 February

Whale Watching near Cape Town, South Africa Welcome to Gansbaai, home of the Marine Big 5.

Trip summary 13 February 2022:

Today was a beautiful day with no wind and flat seas! Just outside of the harbour we spotted rafts of African Penguins and a Bryde’s whale. After a few dives, the Bryde’s stayed very close to the boat and we had a fantastic view. We then moved along the coastline and came upon a large group of Cape Cormorants resting on the water. Not long after this, we were lucky to spot a Mola Mola by the boat. We then moved on to pay a visit to our shark cage diving vessel where we were able to witness some fantastic action from Bronze Whaler sharks. Out in deeper waters, we had a rare sighting of a Blue shark by the boat! After this, we then moved on to Shark Alley where we were able to enjoy the active Cape Fur seals on Geyser Rock and a few more sightings of African Penguins on Dyer Island! On the way back to the harbour we were fortunate enough to cross paths with another Bryde’s whale, which we were able to view for a while before heading back to land!Bryde's whale
