Our Boat “The Ivanhoe” – SA best boat based whale watching – 2hrs from Cape Town – Gansbaai

“The Ivanhoe”

Queen Of The SA Whale Watching Fleet

The Ivanhoe is a 42 ft. catamaran, which was specifically designed and custom-built for whale watching.  Our extensive experience gained from over 6000 close encounters with our majestic whales was our inspiration for the design of the Ivanhoe.  The most experienced whale skipper in South Africa specifically designed the “Ivanhoe” to provide an exceptionally safe and stable vessel from which to view whales.

From the Ivanhoe our guests have an unobstructed view of the whales and our guests will never get wet – even in inclement weather conditions.  While the Ivanhoe is capable of carrying 40 passengers comfortably, for the indulgence of our guests, we limit passengers to 25 for every trip.  This means that all our passengers can be seated at all times making the trip far more pleasurable.

The Ivanhoe is extremely comfortable, dry and most importantly stable.  Our guests have the advantage of looking down at the whales from the upper viewing bridge, giving them a great perspective.  Other amenities specifically designed with the guest’s pleasure in mind are large, dry cabins on the lower deck as well as toilet facilities.  The Ivanhoe is equipped with two 4-stroke 250hp petrol engines that make the trip exceptionally quiet and pollution free.

We conform to the highest safety standard and The South African Maritime Safety Authority surveys the Ivanhoe annually.

Southern Right Whale Facts

These days, southern right whales delight whale watchers with their peculiar looks and crowd attracting antics, like breaching and headstands. They are increasingly seen on the NSW coastline from June to the end of November. You can spot them off the shore of a beach, on a boat or venture into a NSW national park. Southern right whales can be found in very shallow water including estuaries and bays. They have even been known to swim into the surf zone, but are not known to strand. If you are lucky enough, you may even delight in watching the mothers and calves playing together. This is a very important time for the calf, as the mother is teaching its young the life skills it will need before it returns to the Antarctic.
