Whale Watching near Cape Town, South Africa Welcome to Gansbaai, home of the Marine Big 5.
Trip Summary 04 June 2022:
After heading out of the harbour today we made our way straight to our shark cage diving vessel where we witnessed some fantastic Bronze Whaler shark action. We then headed out into deeper water where we stopped by a large group of diving birds including Cape Gannets, Cape Cormorants and a White Chinned Petrel. In the distance, we spotted a couple of whale spouts and upon investigating further we came across two Bryde’s whales whom we enjoyed for some time before moving on. After this, we made out way to Shark Alley to see our 60,000 strong Cape Fur seal colony and then passed by Dyer Island! On our way back we were incredibly lucky to spot two Mola Mola (Sunfish) briefly basking on the surface. Our luck continued when finding a raft of African penguins and another pair of Bryde’s whales! The mother and calf pair enthralled our guests as we continued on our way back to the harbour. The escort from out winter visitors, the Sub Antarctic Skuas, made for a perfect end to our trip.
