Picture of the day: Our vessel Damara beaching

“Picture of the day”

In this picture, our vessel Damara beaching, after yet another fantastic trip on the ocean.

Today we had many excited phone calls about Orca’s in the bay.

Upon further investigation we were able to determine that the animals that caused so much excitement were in fact the offshore species of Bottlenose dolphins.

These large dolphins can often be mistaken for their larger cousins (Orca’s) due to their large size, reaching as much as 4 meters in length and 650kg.

These dolphins appeared to be feeding during their short visit to the bay.

They are also not a common sight so truly reason for excitement.
