Whale Watching near Cape Town, South Africa Welcome to Gansbaai, home of the Marine Big 5.
Trip Summary 06 April 2023:
Today we had again two trips with great sightings of sharks, seals, penguins, and a humpback dolphin on our second tour. As usual, we were starting our tour along the coast where we spotted the dolphin and some Bronze whaler sharks at the shark cage diving boats. Before heading towards the islands to see the endangered African Penguins and Cape fur seals we went through some deeper waters that turned out to be rather quiet today, with only a couple of seabirds flying past.

African Penguin Cape fur seal Bronze Whaler Shark 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.
