Whale Watching near Cape Town, South Africa Welcome to Gansbaai, home of the Marine Big 5.
Trip Summary 21 July 2022:
A wonderful day out at sea today left us in awe, with trip 1 having some amazing sightings of Humpback Whales and a special Southern Right whale sighting too! The bird activity was superb with some views of pelagic seabirds such as White Chinned Petrels, Cape Cormorants, Giant Petrels, Sooty Shearwaters, African Penguins and even two Shy Albatross. On our second trip, we even witnessed a trio of Southern Giant Petrels feeding on a Cape Fur seal! The Cape Fur seals were a treat on Geyser Rock and we also stopped to get some looks at the African Penguin on Dyer Island. After some fin-tastic activity from some Bronze Whaler Sharks around the shark cage diving vessel, we made our way back to the harbour with 4 out of the Marine Big 5 crossed off our lists today. Our second trip had some beautiful views of a Southern Right whale and a surprise sighting of a Mola Mola (sunfish) as well!
