Full description
Our trips departing from Quay 5 in the Waterfront. With a bit of luck you will have a chance to see Cape Fur Seals, Dolphins, Whales, Penguins and Sun Fish and potentially much more as we search the bay for sea life. The destination of the tour is not always the same as this trip is really about spending time on the water and looking for the rich sea life that can be found in the proximity of Cape Town. However you can be assured that you will have amazing views of the Table Bay and will be able to see some of Cape Town most amazing landmarks from the water: Table Mountain, Signal Hill, Lion's Head, Camps Bay and Clifton Beaches, Robben Island. You will of course be able to take pictures when the speedboat occasionally stops to make sure you have memory of such incredible experience. The trip starts with a safety briefing by the skipper, the fitting of life jackets and the signing of the indemnity in our offices on Quay 5. Children are welcome as long as they are under the supervision of adults. Our expeditions are weather-dependent and routing will depend on the expected weather conditions for the day.

It was an absolutely incredible experience. The weather was perfect. Loved the high speed! We saw a sunfish, penguins, seals.....and hundreds and hundreds of dolphins (a pod of dolphins)! It was spectacular! We could hear them breath! They swam next to the boat. Frolicking around. The guide was very knowledgeable, very friendly and went the extra mile to make our experience unforgettable. Thank you Cape Town Ocean Safari!
