Full description
Head out of the city on this full-day excursion to Gansbaai. Stop to see the African penguins at Stony Point or visit the Harold Porter National Botanical Garden. Continue to the seaside town of Gansbaai. Take in the magnificent cliffs of De Kelders and the unspoiled beach. Board a purpose-built boat for a 2-hour Big 5 sea safari. There will be a limited number of passengers, making it possible to fully enjoy the experience of observing the creatures you encounter. Head back along the coast to Hermanus for a late lunch (at your own expense). Visit the up-market shops and arts-and-crafts stalls. Continue to Peregrine Farm Stall, and see quality produce straight from the farm.

We book our trip for Thursday and they send an email for changing the date because of the weather, which it's ok because we now about the wind and stuff you can have in Cape Town. Today was supposed to be they day, and we called because they didn't came to pick us up, and they say they changed the activity time from 7 to 11!!! We woke up at six for nothing and without advice. Today we are having the trip and I hope it's very good and nice for writing a new and better review. The good thing is that the tour operator answered the phone and explained us the situation.
