Whale Watching near Cape Town, South Africa Welcome to Gansbaai, home of the Marine Big 5.
Trip Summary 22 July 2023:
A bright and early start to the day with some wild conditions out in the bay. We made our way out to the western edge of the bay for the start of our first trip and came across a Cape fur seal enjoying some breakfast along with seven Shy Albatross enjoying the west wind. Before we made it to the islands we encounter a Humpback whale, and whilst on the timid side, we were given a few nice views with a Southern Right whale spotted in the deeper waters behind the island. The second trip of the day headed straight for the islands and were lucky to encounter a pair of Southern Right whales that spent much of the time on or just below the surface as the Albatross glided around them. Both trips enjoyed visits to the Cape fur seal colony of Geyser Rock and Dyer Island to have a closer look at the seabird colony and a few African penguin.
