Itinerary Details

Start your tour with a friendly, professional tour guide who will pick you up from your accommodation. We will contact you the evening before the tour to confirm all the necessary arrangements. We take the scenic route up the magnificent Sir Lowrys Pass with a pitstop at the top and then travel through to Gansbaai where the boat trip starts. Spend 2-3 hours on the boat with a marine tour guide. The area surrounding Dyer Island and Shark Alley is world famous for the Marine Big 5. Depending on the time of year, you may see whales, dolphins, Cape fur seals, African penguins and great white sharks plus an abundance of sea bird life, all potentially in a single trip. An absolute must-see destination for wildlife photographers.
After the boat trip, drive home along the picturesque Gordon's Bay sea route, stopping at the Stony Point penguin colony on the way - time permitting.
Drop off at your accommodation at the end of a great experience.
* NB - the boat trip is weather dependent. We will liaise with you regarding the choice of alternate activities to replace the boat trip should it be cancelled.
