Whale Watching near Cape Town, South Africa Welcome to Gansbaai, home of the Marine Big 5.
Trip Summary 14 December 2022:
Another sunny day in Kleinbaai which was filled with a lot of wildlife including the Marine Big 5. Along the coast, we spotted a small group of humpback dolphins close to shore and saw a few bronze whaler sharks at the shark cage diving boat. While having a look around in the deeper water behind the islands we spotted a Bryde’s whale that surfaced a few times close by before taking a deeper dive. Arrived in Shark Alley we got to see thousands of Cape fur seals and some penguins on Dyer Island. We could have not asked for a better day at sea!

What species did we see today?
African Penguin Indian Ocean Humpback Dolphin
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.
