Dyer Island Cruises is a licensed boat-based whale watching company, operating around the world famous Dyer Island, Gansbaai, Western Cape, where you will be fortunate enough to spot the Marine Big 5 (whales, dolphins, great white sharks, seals and penguins).
Enjoy an incredible experience viewing our Southern right whales annually from June to December arriving in the bay to mate and calve. Witness mating displays, breaching, tail slapping, spy-hopping and more. From January to May we are fortunate to have the Bryde’s whales in the bay, therefore our trips run throughout the year.
Apart from the whales we may also see the elusive Humpback dolphin, Common dolphin, an incredible array of seabirds and we guarantee a sighting of our almost 60 000 strong Cape fur seal colony on Geyser Rock as we cruise down the famous Shark Alley. Our on board marine biologist will be on hand to teach you more about the amazing animals that visit our shores.
We are certified by Fair Trade in Tourism, live by our motto ‘Discover and Protect’ and work together with the Dyer Island Conservation Trust.
We are only 2 hours drive from Cape Town along a scenic route.
The trip includes an educational briefing, a complimentary drink on return with warm soup and bread as well as a free visit to our African Penguin and Seabird Sanctuary. Professional trip footage is also available for purchase, provided to you after the trip via a downloadable service.
Enjoy your trip with our very experienced crew and always remember that ‘Your Choice Makes a Difference’.
