Whale Watching near Cape Town, South Africa Welcome to Gansbaai, home of the Marine Big 5.
Trip Summary 21 April 2023:
A little bit of swell in the bay didn’t stop us from having some beautiful wildlife sightings today and certainly made for an exciting adventure aboard Dreamcatcher! Over by the shark cage diving vessels today we had some great looks at the Bronze Whaler sharks. Even a Short-Tail stingray made an appearance and came in nice and close! In deeper waters we enjoyed some incredible seabird activity including; Giant Petrels feeding on a Cape Fur seal, Cape Gannets, various Terns and Petrels, and even a Shy Albatross! In the world-famous Shark Alley, the 60,000-strong Cape Fur seal colony definitely did not disappoint and was very active around the boat. By Dyer Island, we were fortunate to spot some of the endangered African Penguins on land! On our way back to Kleinbaai Harbour we also came across a raft of these penguins feeding in the bay!
