Whale Watching near Cape Town, South Africa Welcome to Gansbaai, home of the Marine Big 5.
Trip Summary 24 February 2022:
And the great sightings continue today! After seeing the sharks we spotted three endangered humpback dolphins in shallow waters. We are always excited to see them, they are one of the crew’s favourites. Beyond Pearly Beach, in the deeper water we have again seen some Bryde’s whales and already spotted a couple of Cape fur seals before visiting their colony on Geyser Rock. Our last stop for the trip was closer to Dyer Island, where we spotted some endangered African Penguins and other bird species.

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.
