Whale Watching

from R0.00

Whale watching trip lengths are between 2 and 2.5 hours, depending on sightings and weather conditions.  All cruises depart from Kleinbaai harbour near Gansbaai.  Found only in Gansbaai, Dyer Island is located 8 km from shore and is an access controlled Important Bird Area (IBA).  This is for the conservation of its many resident bird species, including African penguins. Adjacent to Dyer Island is Geyser Rock, home to a 60,000 strong Cape fur seal colony. These seals are present all year round. We will take you into the world famous ‘Shark Alley’ between Dyer Island and Geyser Rock.  In addition to that we will visit the whale hot-spots in the bay.

With over a decade of experience, not only do we know where to expect the best whale viewings, but the whales have also learned where to expect us! We pride ourselves on being both fun and educational. Each trip is led by experienced marine biologists and guides.  They share their knowledge with you, keeping emphasis on the welfare and conservation of the animal. Responsible tourism is our main objective so we focus on conservation, education, community upliftment and safety.

When you book a trip with us, the evening before your tour we will contact you to confirm the time of your tour.  Trip times vary with weather and tide conditions. Once you have arrived at the start venue, you will receive a brief introductory talk about the route, safety, and what to look out for. Passengers are fitted with comfortable life-jackets and waterproof jackets. Safety is of the outmost importance. Our operator has extensive public liability insurance.

Whale watching trips also available in Hermanus and V&A Waterfront.
