Whale Watching near Cape Town, South Africa Welcome to Gansbaai, home of the Marine Big 5.
Trip Summary 14 December 2023:
It has been a beautiful day with partly cloudy conditions a light breeze and hardly any swell. As usual, we launched from the small harbour in Kleibaai and started our journey along the coast to see what we could spot in the shallow waters of the bay. In coastal waters we visited the shark cage diving boat of Marine Dynamics and watched some Bronze Whaler sharks passing by the cage, it’s always nice to see them passing so gracefully through the water. We continued the trip towards a reef system to the Cape fur seal colony on Geyser Rock. This time is great to visit them as the colony is filled with plenty of pups on the small beaches. Afterward, we passed by Dyer Island and stopped to get a better look at the endangered African Penguin and thousands of Cape cormorants and we started seeing the Greater-crested terns starting to perform their mating flights. Heading into deeper waters behind the island we were even lucky enough to have spotted two Bryde’s whales.
