How to find the Whales in Cape Town

Where are the whales and how do you find them?  Join the “Cape Peninsula Whale & Dolphin Sightings” group on the ‘Telegram’ app.

Sightings and locations are posted throughout the day by over 500 whale watchers, so you can head straight to the nearest spot to enjoy the show or wait for them to pass in front of your villa!  Humpbacks, Southern Right and a variety of dolphins can be seen along the coast on an almost daily basis. If you’re lucky, the resident Killer whales, Port and Starboard. They are a pair of adult male orcas that prey on great white sharks off our coast. They each have a rare and distinct collapsed dorsal fin and they are named for the nautical terms, as Port’s fin collapses left and Starboard’s collapses right.
