Today we wrapped up the month of September nicely with some very nice Marine Big 5 moments. We started off the morning with a nice surprise encounter with a group of Indian Ocean humpback dolphins. These coastal resident dolphins are endangered, so it’s always a pleasure on the rare occasions that we get to encounter them. Another surprise encounter today was with a humpback whale on the second trip. At this time of the year most of the humpback whales have already migrated through our waters, so it was nice to be able to meet this subadult individual close to Geyser rock. The remainder of our Marine Big 5 encounters were with Bronze whaler sharks, African penguins and Southern right whales. The day ended very nicely with one of these Southern right whales leaping out of the water three times in a row. What a nice way to end the month!
