Whale Watching near Cape Town, South Africa Welcome to Gansbaai, home of the Marine Big 5.
Trip Summary 11 November 2023:
Today was slightly overcast but perfect sea conditions with only a light wind from the west in the afternoon. Out in the bay we have once again to find some Southern Right whales along the stunning South African coastline. One of our trips was even lucky enough to spot some endangered Humpack dolphins. During our tours, we also managed to pass the shark cage diving boats and got to see the Bronze Whaler sharks. Closer to Dyer Island we spotted the endangered African Penguin and other seabirds and passed through the famous Shark Alley to see the Cape fur seal.
