Whale Watching near Cape Town, South Africa Welcome to Gansbaai, home of the Marine Big 5.
Trip Summary 16 October 2022:
Most of our tours today started with a visit to Slasfhfin, one of the shark cage diving boats, where we saw a couple of bronze whaler sharks passing in front of their cage. Further along the coast in Pearly Beach, we spotted the whales. Most southern right whales we encountered during the four trips were mothers and their calves. On the third tour, we spotted a brindle cow-calf pair that was very relaxed alongside the boat so we could get some great looks. Throughout the day we also saw some great whale behaviour from calves trying to lift their tails to an adult lobtailing in the distance. We also passed the Cape fur seal colony and watched some seals swimming in the waters of Shark Alley where others were sleeping in the sun. And closer to Dyer Island we managed to spot a few of the endangered African penguins.
