The Whales Are Here!

As winter sets in and the crisp ocean breeze fills the air, Gansbaai comes alive with the anticipation of Southern Right Whale season. Every year, these majestic creatures travel thousands of miles to the warm waters of the Western Cape, where they mate, calve, and put on a spectacular show for lucky onlookers.

Get ready to witness the awe-inspiring sight of these gentle giants breaching and fluking in the pristine waters of Gansbaai. We have had our first sightings already! So, don't miss out on this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to witness one of nature's greatest shows.
