    Great opportunity to learn about the African Penguin and the challenge that the species faces. The Penguins here are well looked after and some are permanent residents now. When they can be released back into the wild they are. There are also some captive gulls with only one wing each which are fun to watch. The sanctuary is looking to expand its purpose into looking after injured sea birds which is great too, especially those that can be saved after human interaction. Plenty of drinks to be bought and a reasonable selection of gifts from items of clothing, jewelry, books and fridge magnets to be bought in the shop. Recommend being there at 1500 for feeding time.

    You have to visit Lomond Winery when you are in the Overberg region. By far the best wine estate. Gorgeous wines, fabulous platters and knowledgeable and friendly staff. Relaxed beautiful setting :)

    Dave is a wonderful guide. He was patient and encouraging throughout the tour, especially since I hadn't ridden a bike in ages! He's also very knowledgeable about the area so we learned a great deal between the dunes. Overall, a lot of fun and we'll definitely do it again!

    Amazing day on the water seeing over 30 bronze whaler sharks. The crew was fantastic and we were happy with the amount of conservation education and importance of animal welfare to this group. I would highly recommend it to anyone visiting!

    Great tour with amazing viewings of wildlife, lots of info about the animals and their habitat as well as the threats to their future. Seeing so many whales frolicking about with their newborns is an experience of a life time. The boats make sure they are not interfering with this at all. Everything is done thoughtfully and in line with nature. The company also works closely with the nearby penguin sanctuary helping to raise awareness about the penguins and other birds and how we can all help to keep them amongst us. Thank you for your efforts and for creating such beautiful memories for us!

    I joined the volunteer programme go four weeks- and it was an enriching and exciting experience! The staff body were incredible, friendly and passionate. I enjoyed loads of shark cage diving, whale and seal watching and working at the penguin sanctuary. I would recommend the volunteer programme as well as a shark cage diving day trip. Just a note that there have been no great white spottings as of late.

    The morning started off with a delay on the sharklady's end, which made the group of 18 a tit bit restless... But boy were we in for a treat! X2 juvenile great whites of 2.5m in size as well as x2 massive stingrays (family of the shark) came out to play on the day!!! A BIG THANK YOU to the skipper and crew for your friendly hospitality. I will definitely be coming back with a few friends👌
