Whale Watching near Cape Town, South Africa Welcome to Gansbaai, home of the Marine Big 5.
Trip Summary 03 December 2022:
A wet and wild day out in the bay today, our first and second trip made their way through the Shallows keeping an eye along the coastline for some marine wildlife. We enjoyed views of the Bronze whaler sharks at our sister company, Marine Dynamics, vessel Slashfin before our groups headed into deeper water on the lookout for marine mammals such as whales and dolphins, unfortunately, we did not get lucky today but still enjoyed the Cape fur seals and African penguins along with the other seabirds. The third and final trip of the day saw students, teachers, and family from local schools and areas join us for an afternoon out on the bay. We enjoyed some time with the Cape fur seals as they sunbathed on Geyser Rock and cooled off in the surrounding waters and also had a look at the bird colony of Dyer Island with a nice, large group of African penguins seen along the beach section.
Today also happened to be BirdLife South Africa’s 38th Birding Big Day, we were lucky enough to encounter and log a number of bird species throughout our tour, furthermore, our second trip saw the successful release of a Giant petrel that has been receiving care at our African Penguin and Seabird Sanctuary.
