Whale and Dolphin Watching trips in Plettenberg Bay are done the whole year through. You can have close encounters with whales and dolphins when you join one of these amazing ocean trips.
All tours are guided with an expert crew and tour operators who are internationally qualified. The whale and dolphin watching companies are SABBWWA permit holders. This enables them to approach whales from 50 meters instead of 300 meters. Should the whales approach the boat than they do not have to move away. But because of this you will get an up close experience with these majestic mammals in the bay.
Whale and dolphin watching trips
The whale watching season is from July until November. You have a very big chance of seeing the Southern Right and the Humpback whales. What an amazing experience to watch these mammals from up close. The tour will also take you to the seal colony at the Robberg peninsula. The Robberg Peninsula is home to about 5000 seals and other marine life.
In summer (November – June) you have a great chance to see the rare Humpback Dolphins found in only certain areas of the South African coastline! You will also see Bottle nose Dolphins and Common Dolphins. Also on the dolphin trips they will take you to the Robberg Seal Colony. You will see around 5,000 seals in their natural environment.
All trips are weather depending. The boat gets launched from Central Beach into the Indian Ocean. This is a very special way to get on the ocean…no wet feet!
