Dyer Island Cruises provides Eco and Marine Big 5 trips from January till May.

What to expect

During the summer months after the Southern right whales have departed from our bay in Gansbaai, Dyer Island Cruises runs 1.5 to 2 hour trips to Dyer Island and Geyser Rock. Dyer Island is located 8 km from shore and is an access controlled Important Bird Area (IBA) for the conservation of its many resident bird species, including the endangered African penguins. Adjacent to Dyer Island is Geyser Rock, home to 60,000 Cape fur seal colony. These seals are present all year round. We will take you into the channel of water between Dyer Island and Geyser Rock known as the world famous ‘Shark Alley’ or as our crew refer to it, the McDonalds for sharks.

The Eco trips take in the sights at Geyser Rock, Dyer Island, and the White Shark Cage Diving boats. In addition, during this time of year we also spot Bryde’s whales and dolphins. The dolphins we most commonly see are Bottlenose and Humpback.  This is also the beginning of the ‘sardine run’ and our best seabird encounters happen during this time of year.
