Discovery cruises are run on our boats which do not hold permits and are legally obliged to stay 300 meters from whales. These cruises operate all year around. We take special notice of any dolphins in the area, visit the seals and check out any seabirds, sharks and other marine species that may be around, you never know what you are going to see! (See our Premium Close Encounter Cruise to get even closer to the Whales!).
Our local skippers and tour guides provide a personalized service and give insight into the wide spectrum of marine life and geology of the area. The tour begins with a unique dry launch into the surf zone and ends with a ride straight back onto the beach.
Ocean Safaris is a proud holder of one of a few Whale Watching permits allocated country-wide as well as being certified by Fair Trade in Tourism. We are SATSA boded and offset our carbon omissions through our affiliation with the Green Ticket.
Taking a cruise with us will assure you of an exclusive, legal and environmentally sensitive encounter with our marine co-habitants while we actively participle in the documenting of valuable research on whales and dolphins that we encounter during your tour. This information is forwarded to government research departments.
