No question this was worth the price of 400 Rand. 8 of us on the boat. Saw bottle nose dolphins, hump-backed whale, seals, small shark, and another species of dolphin. Exceeded expectations, great guide, fast boat. Super

I spent a number of weeks based in Plettenberg Bay and during this time I was able to go on more than one whale watching tour. You are well looked after at the beginning with tea/coffee, bottles of water and assistance with life jackets. After a very informative briefing (where it is made clear no sighting is guaranteed as they are wild animals), we walked down to the beach and boarded our boat. Fortunately on all the trips I attended whales were found (and occasionally dolphins too!) and it is clear that the guides are very knowledgable. Some encounters were better than others due to behaviour and distance of the animals but even in tricky sea conditions, with large waves, the skipper and guide tried their best to spot whales before we also got the opportunity to see a large Cape Fur Seal breeding colony up close. I thoroughly enjoyed my experience and Ocean Blue Adventures even has a large selection of good quality products to purchase back in the shop. Thank you!

Agnes our guide was very helpful, welcoming and informative. You take your own vehicle to the township and similar to town, park up and someone keeps an eye on it for you whilst your guide takes you around the township. We meet the locals, visited the nursery, pre-school and township shop.

Everyone was welcoming and it is clear that this is an important initiative that is well worth supporting. It is not a voyeuristic tour but instead highly educationally and my wife and 2 kids (aged 6 & 8) found it put many things in life clearly in perspective. Of all the many experiences we have had during our holiday in South Africa this will remain one of the memorable.

This is a great way to help support the community and understand some of the wider issues this great country has to embrace. Well done to Ocean Blue for inspiring this initiative, I only wish it had its own spot on trip advisor so that more people could find out about it.
