Whale Watching near Cape Town, South Africa Welcome to Gansbaai, home of the Marine Big 5.
Trip Summary 18 April 2022:
After we launched from Kleinbaai harbour we passed Uilenkraalsmond and were lucky to find some of the endangered Indian Ocean humpback dolphins. The dolphins were relaxed alongside our vessel and we could get some good looks at this often shy and elusive species. After a brief stop at the shark cage diving boat, we continued into deeper waters and the islands. First, we passed Geyser Rock with the Cape fur seals and later we stopped by Dyer Island to see the endangered African Penguin and all the other seabirds inhabiting the island. After a cruise through the bay, we returned to Kleinbaai harbour.

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.
