We went for a family trip and really enjoyed the experience! The crew is very knowledgable and worked so well with the kids (even though both of them got seasick!) We saw more than we expected! Thank you for a great experience!

This was really the once in a lifetime sighting.Karla was the most attention to detail person and we spoke for 4 weeks to get the right day.The day was 19th September, we arranged for my friend Alan to view the Whales for his birthday and at the last moment my husband and I joined in.Everything aligned the right weather and 10 whales came out to play.The whales came right up the the boat, we also had a special sighting of Male Brindle Whale.They make up 4% of the Right South Whales that come to Cape Town. He came to the boat and he was huge.We also saw a whole mating party. Was the best day of our travels and adventures so far.Jaxs explained so much detail to us and was so attentive.Really was a memorable whale experience.Thanks so much team.My friend Alan, my husband Yugeshin and I really loved our amazing Whales boat cruise.

Ivanhoe Sea Safaris provided an amazing whale watching trip! We saw 10 whales in total (moms, babies and even some mating action) and also were privileged to see dolphins and seals. The staff were great and enhanced this special experience with all their knowledge. If you you are a fan of these gentle giants this is were you need to be!!
