Whale Watching near Cape Town, South Africa Welcome to Gansbaai, home of the Marine Big 5.
Trip Summary 20 July 2022:
A beautifully calm day out at sea today paired with some phenomenal sightings! Across our two trips, we saw a total of 9 Humpback Whales. On our first trip we were incredibly lucky to witness some action from our endangered Indian Ocean Humpback Dolphins and even some Bronze Whaler sharks. On trip number 2 we were thrilled with numerous Sunfish sightings! On both our trips we spotted groups of endangered African Penguins both on the water and on land and of course paid a visit to our 60,000-strong Cape Fur seal colony on Geyser Rock. All in all, a fantastic day out for the DIC team and our wonderful guests on board!
