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

Trip Summary 24 March 2022:

We started our trip today with beautiful weather and clear skies. With a Subantarctic Skua flying beside the vessel, we made our way towards our first stop.  There, we were delighted to spot some beautiful bronze whaler sharks in front of the shark cage diving vessel, Slashfin. As we headed out into deeper waters, we came across a variety of pelagic seabirds including Sooty Shearwater, Cape Gannets, Giant Petrel, a White-chinned Petrel, various Tern species and even a Little Shearwater. We also got a great look at the residents of Geyser rock, our Cape Fur Seals and then went on to spot some endangered African Penguins on Dyer Island.
