What people are saying about Gans Bay

The tour was very well organized! The driver came to pick us up very early in the morning (5.45 am) but the trip was very comfortable and the route had incredible landscapes especially at the sunrise. Once arrived at Gansaabi we were welcomed by the staff and had a briefing about the big 5 and the security on the boat. Then we took the boat and we went out for 2 hours. It was incredible and we were very lucky: the sea was calm and we saw ALL the big 5 (a whale even jumped in front of us!!). The crew was amazing and we had a marine biologist with us, she explained everything we saw. Then we had a debriefing and a quick lunch (soup and bread) before going back to Cape Town. Thanks for the wonderful experience!!!

Interesting trip but outcome very much depending on luck!

You get picked up very early (5:15 am) to drive to Gaansbai, where you get a quick breakfast and an introduction to the upcoming trip. Then you board the boat and after ca. 25 min arrive at the anchor point. On board you change into the diving suits and then the first group of people go into the cage. Water was very cold and you don’t see very far. What you see in the end depends very much on your luck: for me personally, it was a rather disappointing experience though others on the same trip did get to see more sharks. If you don’t mind this „gamble“ I‘d recommend going.

We were really lucky and experienced 4 out of 5. The whales in particular gave us a good show The journey took 3hrs !! The driver told us to have a sleep but he will be keeping the radio on because he had been up early ? We were supposed to go to the penguin sanctuary, this did not happen?? We waited ages for other users to get takeaway food, which they ate in the minibus. We then had to suffer the smell of their food. Not a good experience.

The ocean was very wavy, almost everybody got sick. It was difficult to stay under the sea to see the sharks . The crew was very helpful tough. There was no white sharks only couple of copper heard sharks. There was also no visit to African penguin and seabird sanctuary no explanation given

Der Empfang und die Betreuung in Gansbaai waren großartig. Vor der Bootstour gab es einen kurzen Einführungsfilm. Auf der Tour selbst haben wir u.a. Pinguine, Haie und Robben gesehen. Auch der Shuttle von/nach Kapstadt funktionierte einwandfrei und man konnte die Landschaft genießen.
