    Wonderful big 5 Sea Safari experience. It was a lovely day on the ocean filled with education and sightings of dolphins and seals. Staff are extremely knowledgeable and professional. Will definitely make use of you guys again. Thank you for a great time!

    Its a little out side of whale season, so we knew there was a chance we wouldn't see whales. That being said we still had a wonderful time, and my family live the trip from Cape Town, and the boat ride. We saw sharks, seals, and penguins. They took us through shark alley and the penguins rehabilitation center.

    One the way back to Cape Town, we stopped by for a wonderful lunch in Hermanus.

    Thanks again Dave. We greatly enjoyed our time with you.

    Firstly, the day out we had, bore no resemblance to the previous reviews. It does illustrate however, how much the weather and/ or guide can influence the enjoyment or otherwise of this trip. Pick up was on time, the only surprise being that there were 7 others in the mini bus on the same trip - but this did mean we then got charged the reduced fee for a 'group'.
    Our guide was personable and chatty and gave us a running commentary of what we could see and some of the history behind South Africa.
    The botanical gardens (£ included) were a bit of a dead loss purely because it was the wrong time of year, but served as useful 'stretch' stop en route.
    The boat based whale watching (optional - £ not included) was helped by the fact that it was wall to wall blue sky and mill pond like sea state. This was early Sept and during the 2 hrs or so, we saw probably 5 or 6 whales with calves close up and a pod of bottlenose dolphins.
    Lunch was in Hermanus (£ not included) and you could go to whichever restaurant/cafe that took your fancy.
    On the way back to Cape Town we stopped at a vineyard for a wine tasting session (£ included). All very nice.
    Overall a full day out 08:45 to 18:00 - no complaints at all.
