Whale Watching

Garden Route

The Garden Route coastline is a haven for a variety of sea life including dolphins, seals and whales in season. A pair of binoculars and a good elevated position is often enough for excellent sightings and the experience of sitting somewhere comfortably and watching these magnificent mammals are they play in the waves is breath-taking. For a real up-close-and-personal encounter there are many companies that offer a boat trip out to sea, which is guaranteed to be an exhilarating experience.

There are various companies operating from Mossel Bay, Knysna and Plettenberg Bay that offer daily guided boat excursions where passengers are sure to see playful schools of dolphins, Humpback whales and Southern Right whales.
