Found only in Gansbaai, 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 African penguins. Adjacent to Dyer Island is Geyser Rock, home to a 60,000 strong 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’. We will then take you to the whale hot-spots in the bay. With over a decade of experience we know where to expect the best whale viewings. We boast South Africa’s largest boat-based whale identity catalog and we see re-sightings of the same individual whales year after year.
With so many species inhabiting this area, Dyer Island Cruises offers Whale enthusiasts the most up close and personal experiences with their beloved wildlife.
