Whale Watching near Cape Town, South Africa Welcome to Gansbaai, home of the Marine Big 5.
Trip Summary 09 May 2023:
Today was an incredible trip out at sea! We started off at our shark cage diving vessel, Slashfin, where we sighted both Bronze Whaler sharks and a Great White shark! Over by Geyser Rock the 60,000-strong Cape Fur seal colony delighted everyone on board with their curious nature. By Dyer Island, we were even lucky enough to spot the endangered African Penguins on land! Out in some deeper waters of the bay, we encountered a Sunfish (Mola Mola) which was predating on box jellyfish. We also made a stop for a raft of Africa Penguins out on the water and were pleasantly surprised to see a juvenile Hammerhead shark cruising alongside the boat, a very rare sighting indeed! There was some great bird activity today including Cape Gannets, African Oyster Catchers, Ruddy Turnstones, Little Egrets, and even a Eurasian Whimbrel on Dyer Island!
