Whale Watching near Cape Town, South Africa Welcome to Gansbaai, home of the Marine Big 5.
Trip Summary 31 December 2022:
A wild and wet day out in the bay for both of our trips. We started our trips by following close to the coastline keeping an eye out for any wildlife in the shallow areas of the bay, unfortunately, it proved quiet including our visit to the shark cage diving vessels with a brief encounter with a Bronze whaler shark during our first trip but all boats appearing quite during our second trip. We made visits to the islands to have a look at Geyser Rock, a permanent colony of Cape fur seals, and to Dyer Island to look at the seabirds, more specifically the Endangered African penguins. Our first trip had a stunning encounter with a juvenile African penguin that was spotted darting amongst the kelp as we made our way to the colony.
