Whale Watching near Cape Town, South Africa Welcome to Gansbaai, home of the Marine Big 5.
Trip Summary 31 October 2022:
Today we had some cold winds from the South and the swell was picking up so we started the day early. On the first trip, we have been lucky to find some southern right whales just outside the harbour in Kleinbaai. That was followed by an encounter with humpback dolphins along the coast and bronze whaler sharks by the shark cage diving boats.

Humpback dolphins are an endangered species, with small populations living very close to shore, typically in water less than 25m deep and an average home range of 120km. Their proximity to land makes these animals particularly vulnerable to human influence.
