On 31/01/2019 at 08:45 am, Kyle skippered the AB Marine Vessel and excited Guests on a Whale and Dolphin spotting trip to St Croix.
The following cetaceans were spotted:
Legend: SRW – Southern Right Whale | HBW – Humpback Whale | BRY – Brydes Whale | COM – Common Dolphin | BOT – Bottlenose Dolphin | HUMP – Humpback Dolphin | ORCA – Killer Whale/Orca.
And the UNIQUE sighting was:
On our way back from St Croix we u-turned to get closer to what we thought was a large shark cruising along the surface. BUT, on closer inspection the dorsal fin was thinner and higher than that of a shark. Yup, you guessed it – a Marlin cruising into Algoa Bay.
In our combined decades of time at sea not one of us could recall ever seeing a Marlin in Algoa Bay – what an awesome sighting!
