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 Brides 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.

Hi, we would like to take a whale watching tour in Cape Town end of next week and before booking we wanted to ask if whale watching is worth doing in late April. Are whales at all to be seen? Thanks!

Whales arrive in June and leave December.
