Whale Watching near Cape Town, South Africa Welcome to Gansbaai, home of the Marine Big 5.
Trip Summary 09 September 2022:
We had a whaley great trip today with some incredible sightings! Not long after departing the harbour we came across a cow-calf pair of Southern Right whales whom we stayed with for a short time. After this, we made our way towards our shark cage diving vessel, Slashfin. Here we witnessed some fantastic Bronze Whaler shark action and even got a glimpse of a Short-Tail stingray! We moved on from Slashfin and were absolutely thrilled to spot numerous spouts in the distance. Upon closer investigation, we found two cow-calf pairs of Southern Right whales with more scattered around the area. We enjoyed viewing a particularly playful calf for a brief period before we began making our way toward our island systems. By Dyer Island, we were blessed to spot some endangered African penguins both on land and in the water! Geyser Rock was teeming with activity and the ever-inquisitive 60,000-strong Cape Fur seal colony enthralled everyone on board.
