Whale Watching near Cape Town, South Africa Welcome to Gansbaai, home of the Marine Big 5.
Trip Summary 26 January 2023:
The Dyer Island Cruises team and crew were excited to head back to sea today after two days off due to weather conditions. We launched early and began our trip moving along the coastline, whilst we did not encounter any dolphins in the bay we were lucky to have an interesting view of a large Sunfish along with some close views of the Bronze whaler sharks around our sister company, Marine Dynamics. The Islands were full of life with the sea birds of Dyer Island enjoying the morning sun, including a few small groups of the Endangered African Penguins seen along the edge as well as towards the centre of the island. The Cape fur seal colony of Geyser Rock was also very busy this morning, with a high number of pups and adults alike seen basking on the rock along with those cooling off in the alley and surrounding waters. Whilst we spent quite some time in the deeper waters bordering the bay, it was unfortunately very quite and no whales appeared to be in the area for the day. After scouting these areas we slowly made our way back to the harbour.
