Plettenberg Bay: Whale Watching Boat Cruise

1. Plettenberg Bay: Whale Watching Boat Cruise

Start your 2-hour adventure with an adrenaline beach launch into the sea on a 400 horsepower speedboat. The purpose-built cat style boat has been designed to conquer the ocean without compromising on safety or comfort. Knowledgeable guides and skippers will treat you to close encounters with some of the whales that visit the shores during the months of June to November. You could be graced with sightings of the Southern Right Whale in the Bay or Humpback Whales travelling along the coastline. You may experience the joy of seeing them breach or even view a mother and calf as they enjoy the safety the bay offers. Take a closer look at a vast seal colony and the many pelagic and coastal birds. Other possible sightings include sharks, big fish, penguins, and octopus in their natural habitat.

What people are saying about Plettenberg Bay

Ashwin and PK made sure we saw as much as we could and it was amazing! We saw seals and hundreds (maybe) of dolphins in the 9am session but the whales were being elusive. Our group was offered another trip that day or the next for free, and many of us took the 2pm option and were successful!! We saw two or three humpbacks in the afternoon as well as some rather loud seals on the way back to base. An outstanding experience that I would thoroughly recommend. I would strongly suggest opting for an early trip then, if no whales appear, you have the option of doing it again.

Went yesterday. Weather beautiful. Unfortunately whales were being a bit shy. But saw a shark and dolphins and thousands of seals with their pups. Beautiful day out

Wish we could do this more often. Lovely experience...
