Seafari Explorer (Dolphin and Whale Viewing)

Duration - 60 Min

This unique eco-exploration trip commences with a thrilling beach launch aboard our specially designed Rigid Inflatable Boat. As you explore Durban’s shoreline and deeper waters, you may spot dolphins, sharks, turtles and whales (in season).

The Durban coastline was once the hunting ground of the largest land-based whaling stations on earth. Now, forty years after the Indian Ocean was declared a whale sanctuary, these majestic animals are thriving. Every winter (June to November only) hundreds of Humpback Whales make a great journey up from the freezing Antarctic waters and pass the warm tropical ocean just off Durban. This is the "Humpback Highway" where we may encounter these 40-ton giants, singing and breaching as part of their courting ritual.

Informative commentary is provided by our Skipper.
