Whale Watching near Cape Town, South Africa Welcome to Gansbaai, home of the Marine Big 5.
Trip Summary 27 January 2024:
Today we are heading out to sea with one of our vessels Whale Whisperer. We left Kleinbaai Harbour behind us and moved further into the bay straight to the natural estuary excited about what we might encounter today. Cruising down the coastal areas, taking our usual route we of course had to take the opportunity to stop by the Shallows, where the local Shark cage diving companies operate. Trying to get the chance to catch some views of the amazing Bronze whaler sharks of the area we were most definitely lucky! Passing through De Clyde, the Kelp forest, we were able to get the importance of the Ecosystem closer to our guests before moving on to our next destination. During the tour, we encountered several bird species, including the endangered African Penguin on Dyer Island. We were even honored enough to have released some African Penguins! Just around the corner in the waters of Shark Alley, the Cape fur seals investigated our boat and guests while the rest of the colony on Geyser Rock watched our boat pass by.
