Whale & Dolphin Watching In Table Bay With Ocean Wonder Cape Town

Ocean Wildlife Encounter

Ocean Wonder is an owner run service that offers boat based Ocean Wildlife encounters. These intimate trips don’t follow any set route. Instead, they’re guided by owner, Paul Lipschitz’s, understanding and ongoing observation of this environment, the creatures in it ( like whales, dolphins, penguins, sun fish and seals ), and the ever changing water and weather conditions.

Expert Guided Trips

There’s no set route. We’ll go where we can to find our oceanic friends. Normally it’s in the Table Bay area. You’ll be guided by local knowledge of the weather, the ocean and the patterns and movements of creatures in it.

Incredible Environment

Besides the amazing animals that we encounter, it’s a really fun boat ride in an incredibly beautiful environment. The views of Table Mountain and Robben Island are amazing too.
