  • Whale Watching Ocean Safari Trip

    Cruises depart from Kleinbaai Harbour where all eight boats are based. These whale watching safaris run from July to December and it is one of the only places in the world where you can see the mighty whale and a great white shark on the same boat trip. You have the opportunity to see the Southern Right Whale, Hump Back Whales. Bryde’s Whales, Dolphins, Great White Sharks, Penguins and a colony of seals, consisting out of 60, 000 Cape Fur Seals.
    Whale watching ocean safaris are educational and fun for family outings; especially if there are young children in the family. Experienced marine guides leads each trip sharing their knowledge with you and the rest of the group. A lot of emphasis is placed on the welfare, conservation, education and safety of the environment.
    On this trip you’ll visit Dyer Island and cover the area between Danger Point and Quin Point which is close to Cape Agulhas which is the most southern tip of Africa. Whale watching safaris are about two to three hours long and are available from July to December.

    *MINIMUM OF 8 PEOPLE TO RUN TRIP + MAXIMUM 12 PEOPLE
    Should the number of people be less than the minimum required we will run a standard White Shark Cage Diving trip in it’s place.

    The trip out on the rib was a fantastic experience. We got to see several Great White Sharks at the cage diving boat and then a few penguins and literally thousands of seals at Dyer Island itself. Afterwards we went to see the Southern Right Whales and we were lucky enough to encounter several mating groups of 4 or 5 whales some of them with calves up close. The staff upon the boat were all very passionate about the sea life, at one point we looped around (pardon the pun!) to pick up some loose rope to ensure the whales didn’t get tangled in it, and they provided great knowledge around the marine life in the area. Also the boat itself was excellent, having a third deck gave great views down into the water which was particularly useful when viewing the Great Whites.
