Whale Watching

Details & Description

If you’re looking for majesty, then few things will beat a close-up experience with the whales that inhabit our Cape waters. This boat-based whale watching excursion puts you on the water for the best possible sightings and photo opportunities.

Each tour starts near Gaansbaai and passes Dyer Island, a controlled bird area, and Geyser Rock, home to 60,000 Cape Fur Seals. Your tour boat will also pass through “shark alley” so keep all your limbs in the boat 

Trips run for around 2 hours depending on the quality of the sightings and weather conditions. Our bookings team can talk you through what you need to take and booking transfers.

Peak season is June to December.
