If you want to try something that is a little more adventurous or distinct during your South African holidays, then this amazing tour is unbeatable! Perfect for nature admirers, water enthusiasts and daring at heart alike, our premium Whale Watching Tour will put you incredibly closer to these giant yet equally graceful and intelligent marine mammals on a safe boat cruise.
Every year, mostly from June, thousands of whales (particularly Southern Right Whales) flock into South Africa’s warmer coastal waters and protected bays to breed, calve and nurse their younger ones. They thrive and remain here through November – December. This unique whale sighting during the approximately six month period makes it an extraordinary treat for vacationers to catch up with the mammals and witness their stupendous display of aerobics. So join us on this three-hour whale watching boat excursion to appreciate the gentle magnificence of these creatures first-hand from a nearer but safer distance.
As you cruise into the region’s prime whaling stations, your experienced guide enlightens you with some fascinating facts on the African aquatic life. Look out for whales which serenely log / swim or even breathtakingly breach, spout, skyhop, and lobtail or flap their tails and fins while making a loud sound. Besides Southern Right, you’ll spot several distinct whale species like Humpback and Bryde’s, and this largely depends on your cruise route. Al though whale watching is the key highlight, it’s very likely that you’ll be greeted by adorable African penguins, great white sharks, striking cape fur seals, and mostly, a pod of majestic dolphins (not always guaranteed) on this wonderful cruise.
With the mind-boggling views all around, interesting real-time whale-watching commentary, and refreshments / snacks available onboard, you’re guaranteed of the most unforgettable eco-adventure cruise.
