Whale Watching near Cape Town, South Africa Welcome to Gansbaai, home of the Marine Big 5.

Trip Summary 21 November 2022:

Today started rather gloomy with the sky covered in grey heavy clouds, but the sea was nice and calm, so we were very excited to start our wildlife adventure. As the day progressed, the sky cleared out and we were so lucky to encounter Southern Right whales on all our trips today and even got a glimpse of a rather shy Indian Ocean Humpback dolphin on our first trip. We were so thrilled to still be able to enjoy mother-calf whale pairs, as we are getting close to the end of the whale season!  Our sister company Marine Dynamics helped us out with our Bronze Whaler sightings and we also got to enjoy playful Cape fur seals at Geyser Rock. We had multiple African penguin sightings on Dyer Island, but also we spotted a few of them close by the colony swimming in the water, which is always a nice view!
