Whale Watching near Cape Town, South Africa Welcome to Gansbaai, home of the Marine Big 5.
Trip Summary 04 February 2024:
Heading into another day out at sea! We had two trips ahead of us today and we started by leaving Kleinbaai Harbour behind us and headed towards Uilenkraal, the natural estuary, where we on both trips got to encounter some endangered African Penguins in the water. Moving on into the Shallows to the Shark cage diving vessels we got some great views of the amazing Bronze whaler sharks in front of our sister company’s boat Slahshfin. On the second trip, our guests even got to see a Short-tail stingray! We continued over to the Reef system, De Clyde, before heading into deeper waters, as well as to the Island system. It started a bit foggy but cleared up after some time. Nevertheless, we were able to view the African Penguins on Dyer Island and the Cape fur seals on Geyser Rock, where the seals were also circling the boat.
On our second tour of the day, the weather cleared up and we had some more sunshine. This trip started with a group of penguins at sea that was followed by te Bronze Whaler sharks at the shark cage diving boats. While observing the sharks we were also lucky to spot a big short-tailed stingray. After a stop at the islands as on the first tour we headed out into some deeper waters and were able to find a Bryde’s whale. What a great day at sea!
