Cape Town Whale Watching – Simons Town

The western half of False Bay – stretching from Strandfontein all the way to Cape Point is an area is sheltered from the open ocean, surrounded by stunning views & provides an ideal winter home for the Southern Right Whales. They visit each year between June to early December to mate, calve, in the warmer waters far from the icy Antarctic winter. Interacting with these gigantic & magnificent mammals (the size of 12 elephants) is an experience that will stay with you for the rest of your life. Be ready to photograph one breaching high out of the water or giving you a friendly wave with its tail! On this trip we may also have the pleasure of viewing Brydes whales, Humpback whales, Orcas and Dolphins which are common in False Bay.
