Ivanhoe Sea Safaris is universally regarded as one of the leading boat tour operators in South Africa. Take a 2hr boat trip from the harbour of Gansbaai and discover the site where the famous British iron paddle-wheel frigate HMS Birkenhead, weighing 1400 tons, was tragically lost off Danger Point. En-route you may catch sight of Walker Bay’s BIG 5!
The Birkenhead has secured a place in history due to the gallantry of her men, who, in the face of great danger, allowed the women and children to escape in the boats before trying to save themselves. "The Birkenhead Drill" - Women and children first!
What you should bring: -
