Plettenberg Bay Whales, Dolphins & Marine

Plettenberg Bay enjoys abundant marine life, and it is one of the best places in South Africa, if not in the world, to see whales, dolphins and seals. A significant sector of the Plett tourism industry is based on marine tours to see whale, dolphins and seals and whale-watching. Boat trips are offered year round to view the Cape Fur Seal colony on the Robberg peninsula, Bottlenose dolphins, Common dolphins, a small population of rare Humpback dolphins, resident Bryde’s whales and other marine life, including sharks and seabirds.
Between late May and November, Plettenberg Bay’s waters host a great number of Southern Right whales, and in November many Humpbacks move through the Bay. This is Whale Season, when you can enjoy a licensed close-encounter boat trip – up to 50m, though the whales very often close that gap – sometimes all the way!
Take a look at ShowMe Plett’s articles and listings for more on the marine life of Plettenberg Bay, marine tours and boat-based whale-watching (including close licensed encounter whale-watching).
