Whale Watching near Cape Town, South Africa Welcome to Gansbaai, home of the Marine Big 5.
Trip Summary 15 February 2022:
Today we had some clouds but a beautiful calm ocean and amazing sightings on both trips. On our first tour, we were heading towards Danger Point and quickly came across some pelagic and coastal seabirds as well as a sunfish. Out in deeper water, we continued to the famous Shark Alley, to see the Cape Fur seals and also stopped closer to Dyer Island to see the penguins. Back at the coastline and after a stop to see the bronze whaler sharks we encountered a single humpback dolphin.
On the second tour for the day, we were heading once again to Danger Point and were delighted to find a humpback whale, what a surprise! The whale was very relaxed alongside our vessel and even approached us several times before we moved on. Not far off we came across a Bryde’s whale swimming close to some Cory’s Shearwater that was resting. We also passed the Cape Fur seals and penguins on our second tour and had a stop at the shark cage diving boat where we had some close up looks at the bronze whaler shark.
