Whale Watching near Cape Town, South Africa Welcome to Gansbaai, home of the Marine Big 5.
Trip Summary 25 June 2022:
After departing the harbour this morning we made our way to our shark cage diving vessel, Slashfin, with an escort from our winter visitors, the Sub Antarctic Skuas. Here we were able to glimpse both a Bronze Whaler shark and a Great White shark! After this, we headed out into deeper waters where we spotted a Humpback whale in the distance. We cruised with this calm whale for quite some time after which we continued on towards our island systems. At Geyser rock our ever-inquisitive Cape Fur seals put on quite a show for our guests and crew alike! Next up was Dyer Island where we were able to spot numerous endangered African penguins amongst other bird species such as; White-Breasted Cormorants, Cape Cormorants, Kelp Gulls, African Oyster Catchers and Egyptian Geese. As we made our way back to the harbour we stopped to pull out a significant mass of rope from the ocean and while doing so spotted an impressive Shy Albatross pass by the boat. A short while later we came across a large raft of African penguins out on the water feeding and after this, we returned to the harbour!
