Operating around the world-famous Dyer Island, Gansbaai, Western Cape, this boat tour will give you a chance to viewing the Southern right whales (season dependent), which every year, from June to December, reach this area to mate and calve. You may be lucky to witness mating displays, breaching, tail slapping, spy-hopping and more.

You may also see Bryde’s whales, Humpback whales, humpback dolphins, common dolphins, and an incredible array of seabirds. This experience also includes the possibility to see their almost 60 000 strong Cape fur seal colony on Geyser Rock. An on board marine biologist will be on hand to explain more about the fantastic animals that visit the South African shores.
