when booking the Marine Big 5 Tour we were aware that the chances of seeing whales were slim. Howeve... - Stephan Boesch.
when booking the Marine Big 5 Tour we were aware that the chances of seeing whales were slim. However, we were very lucky to see the first Southern Rights of the season. What a spectacle. Besides the whales there was plenty of action and wildlife. The trip was over in no time. The whole crew was very professional, from booking the trip to the end. The spotter just incredible. As a landlubber one just sees Ocean... no idea how they spot these animals.... All in all a great experience.

We had a pleasant few hours out at sea looking for the Marine Big 5 - we visited outside of "the season" so we were not expecting to see any whales (and indeed did not!) but we were lucky to see the (rare) humpback dolphin, lots of seals at Seal Island and quite a few birds .... no sharks either but hey you see what is around at the time !! Well organised, safe, knowledgeable guides on board, good coffee and soup and all in all a nice trip - easy to book too which is always nice !

Hi guys Although I booked a trip outside the whale season, the team did everything possible to track down some whales and they did not disappoint! The team is very friendly, helpful and well informed. It is clear that the team is very dedicated to the cause. You are great ambassadors for South Africa. Very proud of you guys!!! I am looking forward when whale season is in full swing to do this trip again! Safe and healty regards Sarel
