During a recent trip to South Africa, I was fortunate to discover a company called Dyer Island Cruises.
Based at the Great White House in Kleinbaai, on the outskirts of Gansbaai, it is only 2 hours away from Cape Town.
They offer well organised trips and I observed whales, sharks, seals, penguins AND cormorants “up close” in their natural habitat, all in a single trip!
The friendly, knowledgable staff were only too happy to share their enthusiasm for these animals and the area with me. On our return a welcoming fire and good food awaited. This was easily one of the most amazing, inspiring experiences of my life.
