Dolphin Encounters

Passengers are asked to check in at the Ocean Blue Adventures Shop, which is located in the Milkwood Centre, Hopwood Street, Plettenberg Bay, approximately 30 minutes before the planned departure time. Prior to departure, clients will be equipped with life-jackets (and ponchos, if necessary). Once this is done, all passengers will have a Pre-Trip Briefing, where your guide will explain the trips and safety aspects. Once passengers have boarded their boat, the trip commences with an exciting beach launch through the surf. While the routes may vary, depending on weather, animal distribution and sea conditions, a typical trip runs as follows:- Heading east past the bird sanctuary, we make our way along Keurbooms beach towards Arch Rock. Along this stretch, we usually encounter Bottlenose and the rare Indo-Pacific Humpback dolphins, as well as some shark species. From Arch Rock we cross the bay where pelagic sea-birds are normally to be found some 7km from the shore. Bryde’s whales may also be seen, as well as Common dolphins. Having crossed to the point of Robberg Peninsula, we may venture out to the Wild side, occasionally seeing groups of whales and pods of dolphins. Cruising back along the inside of Robberg, we see the unique geology from this unusual perspective and can observe our growing Cape Fur Seal Colony. At certain times of the year, it is also possible to see numerous Great White Sharks, which frequent the area. Finally we head back along the Robberg beach, while a brief run-down on the history of the area is given. After passing the Beacon Island Hotel, built on the site of an original Whaling Station, . end the experienced with an exhilarating “James Bond” style landing on Central Beach. Trip duration is 1.5 hours
