Whale Watching & Sunset

Whale Watching & Sunset Trips

A Typical trip will have you exploring our magnificent coastline and bay while looking for whales, dolphins, sharks, seals and seabirds.  Apart from the Southern Right Whales, we are able to view Brydes Whales, Humpback Whales and possibly even Great White Sharks.  There are many Cape Fur Seals, African Penguins, Dolphins, Sunfish and plenty of coastal marine birds to been seen whilst out at sea.

Before each trip, a brief, informative talk is given on what animals to look out for and the route we will be taking.  Each passenger is fitted with a reliable life jacket to ensure safety.  On each trip, we drink a toast to “Our Whales” in iced water.   We launch from the fishing harbour of Gansbaai and travel along the Cliffs of De Kelders towards the Plaat beach.

We want our guest to have a fun yet educational experience.  All trips have proficient marine guides on board to answer your questions and share their vast knowledge of the ocean and its creatures with you.  Our objective is to adhere to responsible tourism guidelines and the emphasis of all our trips is on the conservation and welfare of these magnificent animals.  We offer unique trips that give you the ability to observe some of the ocean’s biggest and enigmatic inhabitants in their natural surroundings.

The Trips We Offer

In Whale Season

Whale Watching Trips - (June To December)

Our whale watching trips take place from June to December however, should the whales change their migration schedule (arrive early and leave later) we will adjust our schedule accordingly.  Generally the trip last 2 hrs, but can be longer depending on how quickly we find the whales.  

At the start of the season we launch twice daily at 10am and 1pm, in main season (Aug-Sep-Oct) we put on an extra trip in the morning with a 7am launch and then from September on-wards an extra trip in the afternoon either 3:30pm or if a good sunset is forecasted a trip at 5pm.  The 5pm trip is truly a magnificent experience watching the whales bask in the shallow waters as well as experiencing a stunning Walker Bay sunset.
