Whale watching

South Africa is a prime location for observing sea mammals. These beautiful animals can be watched from both land and water. Each year, a variety of different whales and orca’s – find their way to the countless Western Cape bays to breed, meaning that – between June and December – there is a plethora of opportunities to see these creatures along the coasts of the island. Additionally, large groups of dolphins can be seen throughout the year.
