Whale Watching near Cape Town, South Africa Welcome to Gansbaai, home of the Marine Big 5.
Trip Summary 16 December 2022:
An interesting day on the sea with a blanket of fog covering much o the bay but with patches of the sun shining through here and there. We made our way along the coast and through the Shallows keeping an eye out for any wildlife and came across a lone African penguin out at sea, we also spent some time viewing the Bronze whaler sharks at our sister company Marine Dynamic’s vessel before we headed into the deeper waters to see if there were any cetaceans in the area, whilst we were restricted in visibility due to the fog we still covered a lot of ground outside the bay and were, unfortunately, unable to spot any whales or dolphins. Before heading back to land we made a stop but the island system to take a look at the seal and bird colonies, Geyser rock appeared near full capacity with much of the rocky island covered in Cape fur seals along with quite a few cooling off in the waters of the alley. The Endangered African penguins were also seen on the other side at Dyer Island, where we could get up nice and close to have a good look at them.
