Whale Watching near Cape Town, South Africa Welcome to Gansbaai, home of the Marine Big 5.
Trip Summary 19 January 2023:
It was a beautiful summer’s day in the bay today with flat seas, clear bright skies, and just the slightest of winds coming through from the West to keep things fresh. We started our trip close to shore as we made our way along the coastline coming to the shark cage diving area as we reached the end of the bay. Here we were able to watch some Bronze whaler sharks as they came to the surface around the boats and also as they cruised just under the surface around our own boat. We then made our way out to the Islands where we had a closer look at the Endangered African penguin colony on Dyer Island along with the abundant and active Cape fur seals on Geyser Rock. The deeper waters surrounding the bay were very quite, however, we did spot a juvenile Bryde’s whale and whilst we had eyes on it a few times it appeared to be very shy and disappeared on us quite quickly.
