Overnight? Stay at accommodation in St Francis Bay, in Eastern Cape

Mark your footprints on the sunlit sand of St Francis Bay while watching whales make waves in the inviting warmth of the Indian Ocean. Dip your toes in the ripples and hold your gaze steady for the unmistakable breech of a Southern Right Whale on the South African shore line.

Humpback Whales blow powerful sprays into the salty air as you in turn draw in a deep breath and let out a sigh of gratitude for their sighting. Catch the silhouette of these magnificent giants that gently consume the translucent ocean with their strong silhouette. Witness the subject of legends frolic like fairytale warriors on a seaside getaway. Relax as your life takes perspective against the sheer size of these mammals that wave with tail and tide.

The month of May brings mating season to this secluded bay which shelters the breeding whales in a natural marine animal sanctuary until September. For spectacular impact the sea sometimes commands a committee of dolphins, penguins, otters and seals to welcome this favoured seasonal visitor to coastal waters.

Watch with your family in wonder from alongside your sandcastle or from any natural vantage point on the romantic coastline. Let the kids swim in the shallow beach waters and listen for mating calls and whale sounds. Pack a picnic and keep the binoculars at hand so that no opportunity slips by to make a memory.
