Whale Watching near Cape Town, South Africa Welcome to Gansbaai, home of the Marine Big 5.
Trip Summary 22 October 2022:
A little wind and some swell did not stop us from having a wonderful trip aboard the Dream Catcher today. With both trips being able to spot the Marine Big 5 species throughout the bay. We had multiple pairs of southern right whales seen throughout the morning in the shallower coastal waters and the Indian Ocean humpback dolphins made an appearance as well. We had some beautiful action around the shark cage diving vessels with the bronze whaler sharks and our islands did not disappoint. Geyser Rock was a hive of activity with the Cape fur seals showing off their acrobatics and we also stopped at Dyer Island to spot some African Penguins.

What species did we see today?
Bronze Whaler Shark Southern Right Whale Indian Ocean Humpback Dolphin
Humpback dolphins are an endangered species, with small populations living very close to shore, typically in water less than 25m deep and an average home range of 120km. Their proximity to land makes these animals particularly vulnerable to human influence.
