Rated by “Europe” magazine as one of the top 25 marine eco-ventures worldwide, Ocean Safaris is widely regarded as the premier boat-based whale-watching company in South Africa. We are proud owners of one of a few whale watching permits allocated country wide and are also licensed by the South African Boat-Based Whale Watching Association (SABBWWA) to conduct marine mammal encounters in Plettenberg Bay. With Ocean Safaris, you can be assured of an exclusive, legal and environmentally sensitive encounter with our magical marine co-habitants. We also enjoy a special working relationship with the highly regarded and locally based Centre for Dolphin Studies, adding further to our commitment to the sustainable preservation of our marine heritage in Plettenberg Bay.
Our location is a natural magnet to visitors from near and far, both human and aquatic. The bay is protected from most prevailing sea and weather conditions by the spectacular Robberg Peninsula Plettenberg Bay. This means that we can go to sea more frequently than any other operator in the country.
