Cape Town Tours

Peninsula with Whale-watching Boat Trip - Private Full-Day Tour

Cape Peninsula, South Africa

Humpback Whale
Return to Cape Town & Cape Winelands Tours

Depart the city for Simonstown to board the 32-foot catamaran, Whale Rider for a 2.5-hour boat trip and the chance of a personal encounter with False Bay’s Whales, Dolphins and Great White Sharks.

Excellent sightings are possible as we may approach within 50 metres of these species which, from June to November, principally include Southern Right Whales (that enter Cape waters to mate and calve), with Humpback, Bryde, Minke and Sei Whales, Common and Bottlenose Dolphins seen throughout the year.

Return to port for lunch at a seafood restaurant, then stop at the unique African (Jackass) Penguin Colony at Boulders Beach. Continue down the coast into the Cape of Good Hope National Park, where we might see various endemic Cape species like Ostrich, Bontebok, Baboon and Cape Mountain Zebra. Walk or ride the funicular up to the famous Cape Point Lighthouse to take in the magical vistas of False Bay from this, the tip of the Peninsula and south westernmost point of Africa.

Leave the reserve, heading home past the beaches of Noordhoek and over Chapman’s Peak Drive, one of the most spectacular coastal passes in the world, through the fishing village of Hout Bay and along the beautiful Atlantic Seaboard.

NOTE: Whale watching cruise portion is scheduled, transfers and Peninsula are private.
