What people say about Dyer Island Cruises (Pty) Ltd.

Alan Hine

A very well organised and professional outfit. We enjoyed a fabulous experience to see S. Right Whales, a Humpback and calf, actually an apparently rare white male calf, watched sharks at their cage diving boat, hundreds of seals and seabirds. All the time you felt you were in safe and knowledgeable hands, esp as the sea was a tad choppy in places. It was good to be provided with soup and bread on our return as well as the coffee/tea before setting off. We had had a rather amateurish by comparison and less successful (not necessarily their fault- it is wildlife) trip from Plettenberg a few days before- but you did feel that the Dyer Island trip was the real deal.

We had a fantastic morning on the water with amazing sightings. It was exceptionally well organised and we were given plenty of time in each location to view the Marine 5. Thank you

Excellent Organisation, value for your money and they have an excellent and friendly staff. The tour is spotting animals in the wild and comes therefore with no guarantees. But we were very fortunate and had some astonishing moments!

The trip was amazing.! We saw a rare species of whale, some other whales, sharks, seals and penguins.! The staff portrayed the safety instructions very well and really took care of all the passengers aboard.! Many aboard were sea-sick but the support staff was just amazing to take care and handle them perfectly.! A must do thing.!
