Whale Watching near Cape Town, South Africa Welcome to Gansbaai, home of the Marine Big 5.
Trip Summary 07 January 2023:
Our first trip of the day started with a stop at Danger Point, as the clients learned a little more about the history of the peninsular, the crew scanned the deeper waters for any indication of whales or dolphins, and with the waters quiet we started to make our way along the edge of our bay encounter a sunfish along the way. We also spent some time in the deeper waters south of the bay before taking a closer look at Geyser Rock and the Cape Fur seals along with dyer Island and all its seabirds including the Endangered African penguins. Our trip finished off with a cruise through the shallow coastal waters where we were lucky enough to visit one of the shark cage diving vessels and enjoy the view of multiple Bronze Whalers sharks. Our second trip of the day launched into some stronger winds with choppier conditions but the sun was still shining. We worked our way along the coastline meeting up with the shark cage diving vessels to have a look at the Bronze whaler sharks before heading out to the Islands and the deeper waters behind. Whilst we enjoyed the viewing of the Cape Fur seals frolicking in the afternoon sun and the African penguins amongst all the Cape cormorants we didn’t have any luck in the deeper waters.
