One of the nicest places to watch whales in South Africa is Plettenberg Bay which is situated on the Garden Route in the Western Cape.

There are a multitude of marine life.  During migrating times, there are the Humpback Whales, and the Southern Right whales visit to breed and calve. 

The Bryde's whale pops in and out of our bay all year round.

Dolphins include the Common, Humpbacked and Bottle nose dolphins.
