Our five day whales and wine package can be taken as an ‘add-on’ to any of our South African safaris, or as a separate stand alone tour.
You will join a memorable 2hr Big 5 Sea Safari. Our goal is to target Walker Bays Big 5, Whales, Dolphin, Seals, Penguin and Marine Birds. You will be transferred from your hotel to the harbor of Gansbaai and where you will set course and head out into the middle of the bay in search of our Big 5. On your journey our crew will educate you on all aspects of Marine life, with a qualifying Marine Biologist and a Skipper with over 15yrs experience there is a wealth of knowledge for you to tap. While no two trips are ever the same, from years of experience we have come to expect sighting of whales, dolphins, sharks, seals and an array of coastal marine fish and birds.
Although sightings of the Southern Right Whales have decreased in the past two years, we are seeing even more Brydes and Humpback Whales than ever before. Dolphin sightings are awe-inspiring and include the ever mischievous Bottlenose Dolphins, the spirited Common Dolphins as well as endangered Humpbacked Dolphins. The Cape Fur Seal population is ever increasing and you are very likely to see these and perhaps even a Great White shark.
You can also enjoy a wine tasting trip exploring world-class wineries at your own pace. Hop aboard a unique HOP-ON HOP-OFF safari-style vehicle and discover the boutique wineries of the stunning Hemel & Aarde Valley in a truly unforgettable way.A fleet of these vehicles offers a distinctively South African experience, allowing you to take in the breath-taking beauty and ‘champagne air’ of this picturesque valley while exploring the world-class wineries at your own pace
