Whale Watching near Cape Town, South Africa Welcome to Gansbaai, home of the Marine Big 5.
Trip Summary 03 January 2024:
Let’s see what today brings! As usual, we left Kleinbaai Harbour behind us and headed straight toward Uilenkraalsmond, where the natural Estuary mouth opens up and all the freshwater runs into our bay. Due to this area being a popular spot for certain marine mammals we took it from there and cruised along the shallow areas along the shoreline. Slowly but surely made it to the Shark cage diving boats where we got the chance to view several Bronze whaler sharks in front of the vessel’s cages. Breathtaking as always we got to spend some time with them before we were ready to head to our next destination, the Island system. Passing through the De Clyde, the local reef system, we made it to Dyer Island, home to the endangered African Penguins. Two of our trips even got to experience a Penguin release! Later on, we stopped by the Cape fur seal colony on Geyser Rock, where our guests could watch the now so-active Cape fur seal pups playing on the island, whereas the adults were relaxing on the island or cooling down in Shark Alley. Eventually, it was time to say goodbye and we made our way back to Kleinbaai Harbour.
