About
Ocean Wonder is an owner run service that offers boat based Ocean Wildlife Encounters. These intimate trips don't follow any set route. Instead, I'm guided by my understanding and ongoing observation of this environment, the creatures in it, and the ever changing water and weather conditions. These trips are all about finding and, where possible and legal, interacting with some of the amazing creatures that frequent the rich waters around Cape Town.

Must do.

We loved the experience. We saw dolphins playing in the water and around the boat, seals, sunfish, penguins and various sea birds. We were lucky enough to see many humpback whales. This was definitely one of the highlights of our trip to Cape Town.

Paul was a great guide, explaining in great detail what we were observing and what to look for. He took the time to make us comfortable, helped out those who were feeling a bit seasick, and even gave us extra jackets (we didn't prepare, heh.)

We would recommend this to any of our friends visiting CT.

Ocean adventure at its best!
Dec 2021 • Friends
Wow, what an incredible experience! A super pod of Humpbacks were feeding off the coast and we were lucky enough to see them! Paul is professional, knowledgeable and created one of my most happiest moments without a doubt!!! In addition to the whales, we saw countless Dusky and Heaviside dolphins, a couple of sun fish and some playful seals.

The whales were tail slapping and breaching all over the place, it was difficult to know where to look - let alone catch some footage on camera!

Overall an unbelievable adventure day, highly recommend and will be back for sure!

An eventful, exclusive experience of the ocean!
Sep 2021 • Friends
The trip occurs on a smaller boat which is faster and doesn't seem to disturb the animals. We saw so much wildlife and learned a lot along the way. Paul is so clearly an experienced, knowledgeable guide eager to share his wisdom and preserve the peace of the ocean. Much recommended!

Our trip with Paul was exceptional. He was so passionate and knowledgeable about the ocean and its creatures. We saw a whole host of sea life including dolphins, whales, seals, a sun fish and much more. Would recommend this trip to anyone looking to get a bit closer to the amazing Cape seas and its animals.
