Whale Watching near Cape Town, South Africa Welcome to Gansbaai, home of the Marine Big 5.
Trip Summary 19 February 2022:
Most of the day we had some fog hanging over the bay that cleared up to the end of our second tour. This morning we were heading along the Danger Point peninsula and into deeper waters where we got to see a couple of Sooty Shearwaters in the thick fog. At the islands, we managed to head into Shark Alley and watched the Cape fur seals before returning to shallower waters and heading along the coast to the harbour.
On our second tour for the day, we were heading straight to the shark cage diving boats and watched the bronze whaler sharks for a while before we continued to Dyer Island. Closer to the island it seemed like the fog is clearing up and we could get some good looks at the penguins, but shortly after while watching the Giant Petrels and the Cape fur seals another fog bank moved over us. Out in the deep and later on, the wind picked up and pushed the fog away so got to see two sunfish and a variety of seabirds such as Cape gannet, Sooty Shearwater, White-chinned Petrel and even a Storm Petrel.
