Boat Based Whale Watching

Whale Watching, Camps Bay

Set off early this morning from Cape Town for the 2-hour transfer to Kleinbaai Harbour at Gansbaai, the launch pad for whale watching cruises in this area, which is remarkably rich in marine life.

After an introductory talk, depart for Dyer Island, 8 kms from shore. This island is protected for its many bird species, including African Penguins, Cape Gannets and Giant Petrels. Adjacent is Geyser Rock, home to 60 000 Cape Fur Seals - the channel between these two islands is known as Shark Alley as Great White Sharks cruise the waters in search of their favourite prey. In and around these waters are strong numbers of Bryde's Whales and Humpback Whales, as well as dolphins which make for very rewarding - and close up - sightings.

Return to shore and enjoy a warm drink while watching a DVD of your day before returning to Cape Town.

The Best of South Africa Travel map displays the locations of the destinations and accommodation that we have selected and visited; for each item, hovering over or clicking the marker will display a short summary and photo of that place or hotel, and hotel pricing. Follow the links in the info box to the full page listing which has much more information.

Note that the online map offers both a satellite view (click satellite in the top right) and, for some locations, a street level view (Drag the person in the top left onto the map). These let you explore the country; and when you wish to explore in person, or if you have any questions about the places you see, give our staff a call, or request a quote. Our staff regularly visit the places and accommodation that we feature.

When you book a holiday with us we will provide full driving instructions for reaching your accommodation, where necessary; these can be used by yourself, or you could enjoy the luxury of a driver. Alternatively we will arrange private (car rather than coach) transfers for you; helicopter transfers are also possible for some destinations.

Boat Based Whale Watching Reviews

My wife and I have just returned from a three week tour

My wife and I have just returned from a three week tour in South Africa arranged by Best of South Africa Travel. From the very first contact with Ash we felt reassured that the service we would get would be according to our needs. We were not disappointed. She organised an itinerary that covered all we wanted to experience, and not  according to what she wanted to sell us! This was important to us. From the Safari in the Kruger to Whale  Watching in the Indian Ocean every aspect of the arrangements were as she described it not better. From accommodation to transfers it was of a high standard and of great value. Even when unexpected problems arose such as BA going on strike, Ash made all the necessary arrangement to ensure our holiday was not disrupted, even whilst she was herself on holiday! I would highly recommend this company and will be contacting them again on our next tour of a wonderful continent.
