Unfortunately we didn't see any whales, but we saw a lot of dolphins and seals swimming together. The tour was nice but just a bid short. The monitors are friendly as well.

We went on a marine encounter adventure with Ocean Blue Adventures and we had a great time. From the beach launch to the beach landing on the return, it was fun all around. You start off at their office where you get a short briefing about what to expect, as well as safety aspects of the journey. You then get... More

In spite of not seeing any dolphins, this was a great trip. We saw a huge colony of seals and sea birds. The boat trip was great fun, comfortable and modern. The scenery was spectacular which made the trip special. The company provided a bottle of water and a snack for every customer. It's like looking for lions on a... More

A really enjoyable trip out on the boat this morning. Saw lots of seals at Robberg then went out to the main ocean looking for humpbacks. Sadly none, it is a bit late in the season for them. Did see a Brides whale. Lots of friendly dolphins around Kerubooms. The guide was so friendly and informative. The captain was very... More

There was only one low point to our otherwise brilliant holiday in South Africa: this was it. The company are interested only in screwing as much profit from tourists as possible; giving them value for the extremely high cost and looking after them was not on their agenda. The customers were milked then herded to the boat, which was overfull... More

You shall enjoy this if you are a disciple of Loki (god of luck). One would think for the price you pay for this trip, that you would see a whale closer than 50 meters away and that is would not be the smallest whale in the ocean. It also seems as if the company does not own any fish... More
