Whale, Dolphin & Penguin Island Cruise

99 reviews
Our cruise is unique in that we operate in the diverse Algoa Bay, rich in wildlife and history. Visiting St Croix island, home to half the worlds remaining endangered African Penguins. This tour is run just once a day instead of trying to run multiple cruises in one day. This ensures that our skippers and guides are fresh and alert for every cruise and makes it possible to spend more time and effort searching for wildlife in our Bay or observing something special that we come across provided that no one on board is in a rush to get back for a flight or bookings previously made. Our main focus is education, conservation and assisting in research which is made possible by the funds generated from our Marine Eco-Cruises out into Algoa Bay. Trees are planted to balance our carbon footprint for each cruise conducted. We use smaller boats so as to keep our cruises personal. Our skippers and Guides are very knowledge and are there to answer any questions and see to the needs of our Guests.

The tour guide was excellent in a kind of non present way I was picked up by an Uber driver at my hotel , who took me to the brewery and then dropped me at a phone repair shop . The building looked lovely , it would have been even better if i had been able to gain access to it . What delicious beer ! Bring a camera for wonderful pictures of the building and empty bottles in the yard. .

We were in PE for just two nights. Called in for a quick beer on the first night, tried several, the Mexican one was particularly good, in fact so good, we went back the second night for more. They also have a very good gin on tap and good tonics too. Both Karl and Jane passionate about what they do. Great company, great locals, definitely a must!

We popped in just to buy a few good beers but spent almost an hour with the passionate owner, tasting various beers and being drawn into the experience by his knowledge of the craft and the taste and aroma of very good beer. We bought a few good beers as the plan was but gained an experience not to be forgotten and that at a very very good price for such quality.

After trying a couple of their beers, shop bought, my Dad and I decided to pop into the brewery to taste some more. Carl, the owner, welcomed us in and we had a long chat over a few beers about the industry, beer in general and of course all of the beers that he makes. In city where good beer is hard to come by, this brewery is a god send. Not to be missed.

Karl adds something special to every beer that he makes. This special ingredient is a personal touch. He adds it to his beers and to everyone he meets. We arrived at Dockside not expecting much and Karl greeted us with a hello from behind the tanks. He quickly introduced himself and what followed can only be described as special. The beer variety that's on offer is vast and the quality excellent. A hidden gem in Port Elizabeth well worth the visit. 👍
