Whale Watching near Cape Town, South Africa Welcome to Gansbaai, home of the Marine Big 5.
Trip Summary 01 July 2023:
We had quite a windy but a beautiful and sunny day out at sea today! We moved straight into the deeper waters in our search for whales and on the way released a Sub-antarctic skua. We slowly moved through the deeper waters looking for the spouts and finally got rewarded with a few blows, it was a Humpback whale, which was quite shy so we continued with our trip. Along the way we spotted two Oceanic sunfish and a stunning raft of African penguins. As we decided to move closer to the island system our long search was final – not one, but three groups of Humpback whales, 5 individuals in total! They were very relaxed and close to our vessel and a couple of them moved rather fast through the area, displaying mating behaviour. We made our way to Shark Alley and enjoyed some Cape fur seals on Geyser Rock and the birds on Dyer Island.
