Whale Watching near Cape Town, South Africa Welcome to Gansbaai, home of the Marine Big 5.
Trip Summary 02 April 2023:
We had a busy but beautiful day out at sea with lots of stunning seabirds and other bigger wildlife around us today. We got a glimpse of a few Humpback dolphins at the beginning of the day, with them preferring rather shallower waters, it was a little bit difficult to keep up with them. And of course, the animals we can always rely on – Cape Fur seals, were happy to see us around Geyser Rock. We were also lucky to witness a few Bronze Whaler sharks and a quick pass from a White shark next to Slashfin, our sister company’s shark cage diving vessel. And not to forget multiple African penguin rafts that we spotted in the water.

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.
