More about Whale and Dolphin watching tri

A life-changing experience awaits..

We currently have the only Whale and Dolphin Watching License in the Hout Bay area.

Our Whale Watching trips are 2 hours long. We head out towards Kommetjie via Noordhoek and look for whales and sea life all along the way. While we cannot guarantee whale sightings, our expert Whale Watching Guide will answer all your sea life questions and ensure that your trip is memorable.

Dolphins regularly visit our Bay to feed and frolic. Between June and November of each year, the Southern Right Whale passes through our waters, journeying from the Cold Antarctica to calve in the warm waters around Cape Town.

The Humpback Whale also passes through, en-route to breed and calve in Mozambique and Madagascar. Bryde Whales are often seen in our waters.

The trip typically lasts for 2 hours.

We went on this trip not expecting to see much, we hoped we would, but there's always a chance you won't. What we actually experienced was way beyond our expectations, it was amazing! The tour guides were amazing, they explained what we were seeing and they just generally did an amazing job. They were very friendly and we actually overran our time due to the amount of whales we saw. Will definitely 100% recommend these people, they were the best!

The concept of Captain Jack’s was born a number of years ago, from the need to have a fast boat on the water, available immediately, to take people out on the water without delay and back in a timely fashion.
