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.
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.
The Boat – Ocean Wonder
Ocean Wonder is a 7.2m Ballistic semi-rigid inflatable (SRI), powered by 2 x 90hp Yamaha motors. She’s very safe and has been approved by The South African Maritime Safety Authority (SAMSA) as a commercial charter boat, allowed to carry up to 11 passengers. She’s furnished with all the required safety equipment and more.
