Join the Ivanhoe team for what will undoubtedly be a memorable 2hr Big 5 Sea Safari.
Our goal is to target Walker Bay's Big 5, Whale, Dolphin, Seal, Penguin and Marine birds.

We depart from the harbor of Gansbaai and cruise along the scenic route passing
the cliffs of De Kelders and De Platt Beach. Observe the stunning coast line, contrasting white beach's with the blue skies and chameleon waters that stretch for miles from Gansbaai to Hermanus, we then set course and head out into the middle of the bay in search of our Big 5.

On your journey our crew will educate you on all aspects of marine life, with a qualifying marine biologist and a skipper with over 15yrs experience there is a wealth of knowledge for you to tap. No trip is the same and we can never guarantee what you will see, we hope to spot our local Big 5, but there is also so much more marine mammal and bird life on offer.

We were in Hermanus at the start of January and were aware that many of the whales had migrated so we wouldn’t get the big whale spotting experience that you get at other times of the year. However, we did the Big 5 Sea Safari and were told there was a good chance we’d see whales, dolphins, penguins, sharks and seals. Whilst we did see some wildlife from afar, we thought the experience wasn’t really what they sold it as. For example, on the boat we asked how often they see sharks and were told three times a year. It was a pleasant few hours along the coast, but wasn’t worth the 52 GBP / 950 ZAR that it’s sold at.

Wow....what a morning! Perfect number of passengers on the boat so no over-crowding and able to take great photo's. Very informative crew.....professional and knowledgeable. I went with a viewpoint that if we see wildlife, we'll be lucky. The Walker Bay coastline is absolutely exquisite including the Klipkat Cave. We were very fortunate and privileged to see 2 blydes whales, a large pod of playful dolphins, african penguins, seals and an abundance of wild birds. I would not hesitate to recommend Ivanhoe Sea Safari's! A wonderful
