Whale Watching near Cape Town, South Africa Welcome to Gansbaai, home of the Marine Big 5.
Trip Summary 05 July 2023:
A bright and early start for our trips today as our vessel Dream Catcher launched with a chilly winter air felt however the sun shone warming things up and we had some fantastic sightings out in the bay. Each of the three trips for the day made a quick stop by the Shallows, an area utilized by the shark cage diving vessels to try to have a look at the Bronze Whaler sharks they were seeing for the day. Visits to the Islands allowed everyone to see the Cape fur seal colony of Geyser Rock along with the African penguin colony of Dyer Island. We were lucky enough to have a mix of whale sightings for the day, with all three of the main species of whales encountered throughout, this included Humpback whales on the first trip, Southern Right whales and Humpback whales on the second trip, and a Bryde’s whale on the third and final trip. A fantastic day out in the bay!
