Stay overnight and see the Whales before your Great White Shark Dive

Many people regret not staying over in Gansbaai the night before or after the shark dive. The round trip from Cape Town to Gansbaai on road is 5 hours (2.5 hours each way) and with 4 hours on sea and an additional 2 hours at the crew house this works out to be a long and exhausting day especially for the driver. If you are booked on a morning trip (most of the year) then you will have to leave Cape Town at approximately 4 – 5am. You will therefore have to get up at 3-4am which is extremely early. We always recommend to stay over in Gansbaai the night before or after the dive to break up your day.

Sharkbookings offers an exceptional offer of discounted accommodation prices in the beautiful 4 Star Roundhouse Guesthouse. We own the Roundhouse and are on-site to ensure that you receive all of the information and details about your dive the day before. We give you the security of always being in the know about the weather, shark activity and conditions and can answer any of your questions the day before your dive. Should you be concerned if the sea is rough and want to change to a bigger boat then we will organise this for you.

The Roundhouse is based in De Kelders which is fast becoming famous for it’s massive population of Whales very close to the coastline. From mid-June to December the Southern Right Whales hug the coastline of De Kelders and most days you can see the Whales as close as 10 meters away from the cliff edge. Hermanus is the place famed for it’s land based Whale watching but this is actually not nearly as good as in De Kelders. On most days in season you will see 3-5 Whales close to the coast in Hermanus and be surrounded by 50-100 people also watching. De Kelders is very special with numbers from 20-50 Whales on any given day and not many people around. The coastal paths along the rocks offer the best hiking train in the world. Just a 2km walk will take you hours because you will spend most of your time sitting down watching the Whales play only meters away.

The Roundhouse is ideally situated on a steep hill overlooking Gansbaai town and the Walker Bay whale sanctuary. The views from the 3rd floor are breath-taking and many guests make the most of our Jacuzzi and combine the Whale watching with a beer or glass of wine in the Jacuzzi. What could be better!!

It is very safe in Gansbaai and far away from the busy Cape Town Buzz. If you want to see the real South Africa then you do not want to miss staying over for at least 1 night during your visit.
