Whale Watching near Cape Town, South Africa Welcome to Gansbaai, home of the Marine Big 5.
Trip Summary 07 December 2022:
We had another sunny day with a breeze from the west.
Our tour started with a cruise along the coast where spotted humpback dolphins and made a stop at the shark cage diving boat to see some bronze whaler sharks. Before heading towards Dyer Island we covered the deeper waters of the bay and encountered a sunfish swimming just below the surface. Arrived in Shark Alley we had a good time watching all the Cape fur seals as we are in the middle of their pumping season. We also saw a few penguins on Dyer Island as well as Cormorant s and plenty of Swift terns performing their mating flight.

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.
