Summary: Our trip today was amazing!!! We had 4 out of the Marine big 5!! On our way to anchor we had a very big pod of Common Dolphins feeding in the bay, we had some lovly sightings and watched them swimming along the boat! After that we went to release a African penguin with a raft we found near Dyer Island, and then went to Gyser rock to see the seals! Once on anchor we waiting a few minutes for a Bronze whaler sharks and we had some very nice views. Our divers had some very close encounters in the cages and some nice sightings from the boat.
