Here in South Africa we have the famous Big 5 Safari animals (lion, leopard, elephant, rhino and buffalo), But have you heard that we have an equally impressive Marine Big 5 right here in False Bay?
The Marine Big 5 are made up of the Southern Right Whale, Cape Fur Seal, African Penguin, Common Dolphins and our favourite the Great White Shark. False Bay in the Western Cape is one of the only places in the World that can boast of such a diverse and unique range of marine wildlife, making it a one of a kind Eco-Destination.
On our Great White Shark trips run from Simons Town, to Seal Island you can witness thousands of Cape Fur Seals basking in the sun on Seal Island; trawl along the infamous Seal Island on the lookout for the magnificent Great White Shark; float alongside curious and enormous Southern Right Whales; admire the colonies of endangered African Penguins at Boulders Beach and watch spellbound as Common Dolphins surf and breach in the wake of the boat. Besides the Marine Big 5, you will also see an incredible variety of sea birds and breathtaking unspoiled scenery!
Let us know in the comments which member is your favourite. Some might say we are biased, and while we love them all, we have a special place in our heart for the Great White Shark :)!
