It was a great experience and I would highly recommend it to anyone who wants to get close to the marine life around Cape Town.
As with all wildlife watching, it depends a bit on the season. For the whales, it was literally the last few days before the last one migrated back to the Arctic. Nevertheless, after a 90-minute trip, we spotted two female right whales with their calves. We also saw cape seals, dolphins and sharks, you could not expect more.
The penguin colony was amazing. Breathtaking, for me anyway. You could get very close (safe for you and the penguins!), just a metre away from them. The whole colony must be at least a few hundred birds, some of them in the process of feathering, a very unique situation. The birds have become habituated to people, and all safety measures are taken to avoid disturbing the wildlife.
At the very end of the day we went for dinner, a pleasant place. We skipped the wine tasting, but that was up to me, as I prefer to stay with the brides as long as possible (I was the only client). A beautiful sunset we experienced was added to all the above.
Very well organised trip, on time, flexible when needed. Highly recommended.
