Join us for a once-in-a-lifetime experience on this boat trip looking for Southern right whales off the South African coast!

We'll pick you up from your hotel and head out for a beautiful two-hour drive to Gansbaai, the world-renowned whale watching site. Enjoy the stunning scenery. Your guide will provide commentary about the areas en route. Once we reach Gansbaai, we will head out for a magnificent two-hour boat trip in search of Southern right whales. As a bonus, we'll also get to see the penguin colony at Stony Point.

Viewing the whales by boat is the best way to meet these majestic animals. We make sure that we use the most eco-friendly and ethical operator in the area that allows the whales to decide if they want to give close up encounters. We also visit the best area of Gansbaai, by the Cliffs of De Kelders, a spot proven to carry the most whales through the season.

The tour itinerary is reliant on the launch times available from Ivanhoe Sea Safaris. The number of guests is restricted to 25 passengers to ensure there is no overcrowding and you get to see the whales from all parts of the boat.
