About
Ocean Wonder is an owner run service that offers boat based Ocean Wildlife Encounters. These intimate trips don't follow any set route. Instead, I'm guided by my understanding and ongoing observation of this environment, the creatures in it, and the ever changing water and weather conditions. These trips are all about finding and, where possible and legal, interacting with some of the amazing creatures that frequent the rich waters around Cape Town.

Paul is a great guide. Very friendly and experienced. The ride on the boat was smooth and safe. He knows a lot about the animals and we were able to see dolphins, seals and a whale. Highly recommend.

An eventful, exclusive experience of the ocean!
Sep 2021 • Friends
The trip occurs on a smaller boat which is faster and doesn't seem to disturb the animals. We saw so much wildlife and learned a lot along the way. Paul is so clearly an experienced, knowledgeable guide eager to share his wisdom and preserve the peace of the ocean. Much recommended!

Exceptional Ocean Wildlife Encounter
Sep 2021
Our trip with Paul was exceptional. He was so passionate and knowledgeable about the ocean and its creatures. We saw a whole host of sea life including dolphins, whales, seals, a sun fish and much more. Would recommend this trip to anyone looking to get a bit closer to the amazing Cape seas and its animals.

Ocean Safari
Sep 2021
An ocean adventure. Paul obviously knows his stuff. Seals, dolphins, sea birds and a pod of whales who came to greet us. On top of everything, you get to see the most spectacular panoramic view of Cape Town from the water.
Paul handled the boat so skillfully in the large-ish swell that we never even got wet (or sea-sick!)

Best experience, very nice guide!
Aug 2021 • Couples
We had the most beautiful experience whale watching with a very nice and professional gide!

We haven’t only seen whales, but also dolphins, seals and pinguïns! The gide also told us a lot of interesting things about the sea life around Cape Town. It was way better than we already expected it to be, the boat trip alone already was much fun.

I really recommend this company for every experience they offer, they do their job with real passion.
