Big 5 Sea Safari Boat Ride of Gansbaai or Walker Bay
- Search for Walker Bays Big 5
- Experience a close encounter with marine wildlife
- Cruise next to the cliffs of De Keldar
Bottlenose dolphins are often seen on these trips and if you are lucky enough to encounter a school, grab the zoom lens as dolphins love to entertain and it’s a photographer’s paradise. On your return to Gansbaai Harbour pay attention to the danger point, this is often where the resident Bryde's whales are found in the area. Bryde’s whales are hunters and feed on wide variety of fish, mackerel is common to the waters as well as plankton, crustaceans and cephalopods.
On your journey your crew will educate you on all aspects of marine life, with a qualified marine biologist and a Skipper with over 15 years experience there is a wealth of knowledge available. No trip is the same and it can never be guaranteed what you will see, but there are so many marine mammals and bird life on offer, that it's an avid photographers dream!
Danger Point is where the British iron paddle-wheel frigate HMS Birkenhead, weighing 1400 tons, was tragically lost. This stretch of water has earned its reputation by default and the Sea Safari is dependent on the water conditions at danger point. If the water conditions for this area will not deliver a memorable experience, your trip may be moved to Walker Bay.
