Whale Watching near Cape Town, South Africa Welcome to Gansbaai, home of the Marine Big 5.
Trip Summary 17 January 2023:
Today was our first day back out in the bay after two days off due to some not so favourable conditions coming through the area. We were greeted by a few thousand Cape Cormorants as we made our way out into the bay before heading towards the shark cage diving area and vessels. Whilst shark sightings had been a little on the slow side this morning we were lucky to see some Bronze whaler sharks at one of the boats before we headed out of the bay and into deeper waters. Just behind the islands, we struck luck again with a Bryde’s whale encountered, and while the conditions were a little up and down in that area we had some stunning views of the animal as it came to the surface again and again. To finish off our trip we paid a visit to Dyer Island to look at the seabirds including the Endangered African penguins along with Geyser Rock and its Cape fur seal inhabitants.
