Whale Watching near Cape Town, South Africa Welcome to Gansbaai, home of the Marine Big 5.
Trip Summary 02 June 2023:
It was non stop wildlife for us today! As soon as we started our trip we came across dozens of African penguins in the water and stayed with them for some time, as soon as we moved a little bit closer to Danger Point we spotted two Bryde’s whales: a mother-calf pair. As we were waiting for the whales to come up we saw a few breaches in the distance and went to investigate. To our surprise and pleasure there were two adult Southern Right whales! They were very relaxed and we enjoyed them on the surface and even witnessed a few flukes (tails) going up. As we left the whales alone we headed to the island system and had some luck with Cape fur seals and African penguins on Dyer island. and of course as we got to the shark cage diving vessel, Slashfin we saw some Bronze Whalers!
