Whale Watching near Cape Town, South Africa Welcome to Gansbaai, home of the Marine Big 5.
Trip Summary 27 July 2022:
We had some fantastic sightings on both trips today! On trip number one we were incredibly fortunate to see a Bryde’s whale and numerous Humpback Whales. We even had an amazing encounter with a pair of endangered Indian Ocean Humpback Dolphins. On trip number two we enjoyed some breathtaking breaching from a pair of Humpback Whales to the excitement of both our guests and crew! Of course on both trips today we paid a visit to Shark Alley where we enjoyed our 60,000-strong Cape-Fur seal colony and even spotted some endangered African Penguins both on the water and on land! Over at our shark cage diving vessel, Slashfin, we witnessed some brilliant Bronze Whaler shark action. All in all, a fantastic day out at sea!
