Share the water with some of the ocean’s most charismatic creatures on this Dolphin Watching Excursion, in Plettenberg Bay. Climb aboard and keep your camera at the ready as you go in search of dolphins, whales, sharks and seals.
The group will convene at the office, before launching from Central Beach and travelling east to the striking Arch Rock. From here, you’ll head back across the bay – beyond the point of Robberg Peninsula – to the ‘wild side’, before returning to Central Beach via the site of an original whaling station. Along the way, you can hope to spot an astounding variety of marine life – including Common, Bottlenose and rare Indo-Pacific Humpback Dolphins; Bryde’s, Southern Right and Humpback Whales; Fur Seals and several species of Shark. All tours strictly adhere to current regulations and conservation guidelines, so you can feel reassured that animal welfare is an absolute priority. During your trip, you’ll also gain a new perspective on the coastline’s unique geology and colourful history. With feet back on dry land, you can admire your photographic efforts and reflect on some truly startling encounters.
