There are lot's of whales and dolphins here

An amazing 37 species of whales and dolphins have been recorded off the South African coast. In fact, the coastline shelters one of the most diverse groups of marine mammals in the world. Too bad for us though, many of these are deep sea species which are rarely seen from shore.

Many species of Whales and Dolphins

Happily, there are some species that prefer the warmer waters of the bay, thereby allowing us to study them from close range. Our primary sightings are:

  • Humpback Whale
  • Southern Right Whale
  • Bryde's Whale
  • Killer Whale (Orca)
  • Common Dolphin
  • Bottlenose Dolphin
  • Humpbacked Dolphin
  • Seals and Sharks
  • Marine Birds
