Day at leisure
Suggested activity: Whale watching (July – December)

Description of activity:
We meet you at the Great White House in Kleinbaai. Here we give our guests an extensive and focused educational briefing. Passengers are fitted with inflatable life-jackets and wet weather gear. Safety is the most important aspect of our operation. We start our trip from the Kleinbaai Harbour (east of Danger Point), from there we move towards the Pearly Beach area where we find our highest concentration of Southern right whales. Southern right whales come to our calm bays every year from July to December to either calve and nurse their young, or to mate. After spending the allowed time with these magnificent creatures we move towards Dyer Island.
On our way to the Island, we can be so fortunate to see some humpback and bottlenose dolphins. At Dyer Island we view the African Penguins as well as various other seabirds. Behind Dyer Island, we visit Geyser Rock, which is resident to about 60,000 Cape fur seals. Between these two Islands we find ourselves in Shark Alley. Shark Alley is world famous for its Great White sharks, which makes this probably the only trip in the world where you have a chance of seeing a Southern right whales as well as an 80% chance of seeing a Great White shark. After this exhilarating 2 and a half hour trip, we return to the Kleinbaai Harbour to enjoy some refreshments and to have a look at the DVD of the day. Guests can purchase the DVD for R350. We also supply free email and photo download facilities at the Great White House.
