Description

Depart from Central Beach in Plettenberg Bay with an exciting beach launch. Sail eastwards past the bird sanctuary and Keurbooms Beach to Arch Rock. Here, you may see Bottlenose and the rare Indo-Pacific Humpback Dolphins as well as some shark species. From Arch Rock, head out into the middle of the bay where pelagic seabirds are normally to be found about 7 kilometers from the shore. Try to spot the resident Bryde’s whales and common dolphins or Southern Right and Humpback whales during their breeding season. Then, travel towards the Robberg Peninsula and try to spot groups of whales and pods of dolphins. Cruising back along the inside of Robberg, admire the unique geology of the region and observe the growing Cape Fur Seal colony. Finally, sail back along the Robberg Beach, and learn about the history of the area. After passing the Beacon Island Hotel, built on the site of an original Whaling Station, finish the experience with an exhilarating landing on Central Beach.
