Whale Watching near Cape Town, South Africa Welcome to Gansbaai, home of the Marine Big 5.
Trip Summary 08 July 2022:
We had a swell of a day out at sea today with some fantastic action on both trips!
We were incredibly fortunate to come across a total of eight Humpback Whales across two trips and on our second we were even lucky enough to spend some time with a Bryde’s Whale. Both trips also saw some great bird activity with numerous Shy Albatrosses, Cape Gannets and Sub Antarctic Skuas. Of course, our Marine Big 5 trips would not have been complete without a visit to our island systems and our shark cage diving vessel, Slashfin. On Geyser Rock we were able to enjoy our 60,000-strong Cape Fur seal colony and we passed by Dyer Island, home to our colony of endangered African Penguins which we were fortunate enough to see out on the water on both trips! At our shark cage diving boat, we witnessed some breathtaking Great White shark action as well as a glimpse of a Bronze Whaler shark. On our second trip, we also spotted a Mola Mola (Sunfish) cruising in deeper waters who we stayed with for a short period.
All in all, a great day on board Dream Catcher for our crew and lovely guests who joined us!
