Whale Watching near Cape Town, South Africa Welcome to Gansbaai, home of the Marine Big 5.
Trip Summary 01 December 2022:
A beautiful day out in the bay, we enjoyed nice conditions at sea for both of our trips. Both of our trips spent some time in the Shallows viewing the Bronze whaler sharks at our sister company, Marine Dynamics, and also time around the Islands enjoying the Cape fur seals and seabirds including the African penguin. The first trip of the day was lucky with dolphins as we encounter a pod of four Indian Ocean Humpback dolphins in our bay. The second trip of the day was lucky with whales as we encountered a Bryde’s whale in the deeper waters. The afternoon also saw a Sunfish basking in the surface waters.
An exciting day on the sea with a vast array of sightings!

What species did we see today?
Bronze Whaler Shark Brydes Whale Indian Ocean Humpback Dolphin
Humpback dolphins are an endangered species, with small populations living very close to shore, typically in water less than 25m deep and an average home range of 120km. Their proximity to land makes these animals particularly vulnerable to human influence.
