Whale Watching near Cape Town, South Africa Welcome to Gansbaai, home of the Marine Big 5.
Trip Summary 20 March 2022:
Although we had some swell and winds picking up we had some great sightings. in shallow waters we saw some of the endangered humpback dolphins. After a visit to the shark cage diving boats, we were heading out in deeper waters and weren’t disappointed to find some common dolphins. Not like the humpback dolphins, this species is usually a bit more interactive and enjoys travelling alongside the boat. Next up we stopped at the Cape fur seal colony and had some close up looks at the endangered penguins on Dyer Island. Before we returned to the harbour we saw more penguins at sea and a sunfish too!

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.
