Spot Whales, Dolphins, Penguins, Seals On Ocean Safari

Readers get a special discounted rate with Ocean Experiences

Last updated: 25 November 2019

An ocean safari? Is that a thing? It is now thanks to Ocean Experiences, the scuba and freediving experts known for their cool ocean adventures, from scuba-diving to snorkeling with seals. With their new Ocean Safari, the team helps ocean lovers get up close and personal with the Marine Big Five in their natural habitat. 

That means whales, dolphins, African penguins, Cape fur seals and mola mola. Ocean Experiences is a leading ocean adventure company because they spend every day out on the open water, leading adventures that leave people inspired and informed. 

You can join their 1.5 hour Ocean Safari or the shorter Table Bay Safari. This mini Ocean Safari is suitable for kids from 5, shorter (45 minutes), and more affordable for its discounted price of R550 instead of R600. 

IT’S ABOUT FUN, CONSERVATION AND EDUCATION
Ocean Experiences’ loves to create an enriching adventure, on so many levels. For instance, you’ll learn about the complex social structures that exist in one of the city’s lesser-known seal colonies, or the strange habits of the Cape Dolphin. The team will also teach you how to spot and identify different species of whales. It’s all part of the holistic Ocean Experiences’ adventure.

WATCH: ULTIMATE OCEAN EXPERIENCES

WHAT TO EXPECT ON AN OCEAN SAFARI
You meet at Quay 5 at the V&A for a briefing, put on life vests and board the rib boat. From here you get to enjoy incredible Table Mountain and harbour views (and photo opportunities) as you leave the harbour to begin your ocean adventure in search of the Marine Big Five. 

STOP AT STRAWBERRY ROCKS
The waters around the Cape are rich with marine life, so the sightings begin as soon as you hit the open waters, if not before – there are often seals in the harbour itself. The boat makes a stop at Strawberry Rocks, a beautiful site close to Oudekraal beach, for hot chocolate and cookies. (Tip: ask your skipper about a special mola mola dance that’s said to attract sunfish).

From here it’s all pure adventure, as their expert guides help you spot, identify and learn more about the many mammals and species that inhabit the cold Cape waters. 

BOOK AND GET A DISCOUNT
The Table Bay Safari, which costs R600pp is dicounted to 550 and CapeTownMagazine.com readers get the experience for R450. To book, phone +27 21 418 2870 and mention CapeTownMagazine.com or book online via our exclusive Ocean Experiences deals page.
