Ivanhoe Sea Safaris

Ivanhoe Sea Safaris is the original operator that pioneered South Africa’s boat based whale watching industry that kick started in 1998. We also boast the most exclusive permit in South Africa being Area 6 which is celebrated as the best location from which to view the magnificent southern right whales. Area 6 of Walker Bay has the town of Hermanus on its northern shore and the town of Gansbaai on its southern shore. The Ivanhoe launches from the quaint fishing harbour of Gansbaai, from there we travel along the cliffs of De Kelders and on towards Plaat beach. Gansbaai is a beautiful, scenic 35-minute drive from Hermanus and a two-hour drive from Cape Town.

Ocean, Wildlife

With a recent big increase in sightings and the first encounter with a mating group, whale season in Gansbaai is off to a great start!
