Whale Watching near Cape Town, South Africa Welcome to Gansbaai, home of the Marine Big 5.
Trip Summary 20 December 2022:
A busy day on the sea, the Dyer Island Cruises team along with guests launched bright and early this morning and spent most of the day out in the bay. All three of our trips took a similar path with the boat making its way along the coast, we were lucky on our first and second trips to encounter a small pod of Indian Ocean Humpback dolphins, our first trip also encountered an active pod of Common dolphins. All three of our trips spent time in the Shallows, viewing the Bronze whaler sharks around the shark cage diving boats along with visits to the Islands to see the Cape fur seal colony and the Endangered African penguins. A big thank you to all our guests that join for the Marine Big 5 experience, we hope you enjoyed your trip.

What species did we see today?
Bronze Whaler Shark Indian Ocean Humpback Dolphin
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.
