- TOUR HIGHLIGHTS:
The Southern right whales come to our calm bays every year from July to December to either, calve and nurse their young or to mate. After spending the allowed time with these magnificent creatures we move towards Dyer Island where we view the African penguins as well as various other seabirds. Behind Dyer Island we visit Geyser Rock, which is resident to about 60 000 Cape fur seals. Between these two Islands we find ourselves in Shark Alley. Shark Alley is world famous for its Great White sharks, which makes this probably the only trip in the world where you have a chance of seeing a Southern right whale as well as an 80 % chance of seeing a Great White shark. After this exhilarating 2.5 hour trip we return to the Kleinbaai Harbour to enjoy some refreshments at The Great White House.
Transfer to Gansbaai which is approximately a 2-hour drive from Cape Town, for an exhilarating Marine Big 5 boat trip around the Dyer Island Eco-System. This area is known as one of the finest destinations in the world to view the southern right whales. The whale season is generally from June to mid-December, however as the tour runs throughout the year, weather permitting, the opportunity is there to spot seals, penguins, great white sharks and some dolphin species
