Marine Big 5 Safari from Cape Town

51 reviews
Look for South Africa’s “marine big five”—whales, great white sharks, African penguins, Cape fur seals, and dolphins—on a cruise around Dyer Island, complete with onboard biologist. The southern right whale season runs between June and December, but humpback and Bryde’s whales can sometimes be seen at other times. Your day includes hotel transfers, a warming snack on arrival and return, lifejackets, and wet weather gear.

Visited the Danger Point Lighthouse which is set on the coast line where the Birkenhead ship was sunk about 150 years ago. A pretty impressive structure reminding people of the dangers in the area.

Beautiful to look around and see the views, but that is it. Nothing exciting here. Also, unfortunately opening hours is very short and unpredictable, management needs to up their game. There is much more potential to this little gem for tourists and locals.

It is an interesting place. The area around there is barren and windblown. If you had come ashore it would still have been a long trek to find help. What is more surprising is how long it took to finally build the lighthouse.

The view was lovely and history on the shipwreck interesting to read. Looking at lighthouses as a friend had done lighthouse to lighthouse walk. Did not go into to lighthouse as was closing when we got there.
