Whale-Watching in Plettenberg Bay

Whale Watching

Boat-based close-encounter whale-watching is one of Plettenberg Bay’s premier tourist draws, as Plett is one of the best places in South Africa to do whale-watching. The first Southern Right whales begin appearing in the Bay in May, and ‘Whale Season’ is in full swing by mid-July.

These much loved giants of the sea are easily viewed from shore, but nothing beats a close-up encounter from a boat…with the added bonus of seeing many of the other marine animals and birds that frequent Plettenberg Bay.

Thanks to Graeme Grant, Gwen Penry and other photographers who took these amazing photos from whale-watching boats in Plettenberg Bay, including the Ocean Safaris Close-Encounter boat.
