June through December is an amazing time of year where we can start with our Boat Based Whale Watching/Marine Big 5 trips

More information about the Dyer Island Cruises

Dyer Island Cruises offer excellent service and an experience unlike any other whale watching tour in Gansbaai South Africa.

January – May (Marine Big 5 Eco-Trips)

June – December (Whale Watching & Marine Big 5)

This is a two and a half hour trip with an on-board Marine Biologist to tell you more about the behaviour of the animals and the research done on a daily basis.

Start off with an in-depth briefing at The Great White House in Kleinbaai – (our five star welcoming facility) in one of the conservation and education rooms by our resident marine biologist and trained guides; who will also be present on the boat to make the trip not just fun but also educational.

After all guests are fitted with comfortable inflatable life jackets before the trip departs from Kleinbaai Harbour. There are no age restrictions on the boats.
