Whale Watching near Cape Town, South Africa Welcome to Gansbaai, home of the Marine Big 5.
Trip Summary 10 December 2023:
Leaving Kleinbaai Harbour behind us we moved cruised along the more coastal areas. Both trips got quite lucky and encountered some endangered Indian Ocean Humpback dolphins. The dolphins were super active and left our guests in awe. Moving on we stopped by our sister company Marine Dynamics Shark Cage Diving vessel to get a glimpse of our beloved Bronze whaler sharks. Shortly after we headed over to the Island system. Stopping by Geyser Rock to watch the Cape fur seals on the island and in the alley. Before heading back to Kleinbaai Harbour we paid the endangered African Penguins a visit at Dyer Island. Unfortunately, the deeper waters were rather quite today.

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.
