Whale Watching near Cape Town, South Africa Welcome to Gansbaai, home of the Marine Big 5.
Trip Summary 16 April 2023:
A little swell did not stop us from having an absolutely incredible day out at sea today! We had close-up encounters with two Sunfish (Mola Mola). We were also very fortunate to come across a Bryde’s whale out in deeper waters. There were several rafts of African Penguins out on the water amongst various diving birds. At Dyer Island, we were lucky to spot more of the endangered African Penguins on land! By the shark cage diving boat, we got some glimpses of the beautiful Bronze Whaler sharks and even a Sevengill shark. In Shark Alley, the 60-000 strong Cape Fur seal colony delighted everyone on board! During the trip this morning we also encountered a large group of Giant Petrels feeding on a Cape Fur seal. In shallower waters, the Indian Ocean Humpback dolphins were cruising in the surf. With 5/5 of the Marine Big 5 spotted today, this was certainly a fantastic trip!
