Interesting marine excursion boat ride where we saw a large smelly seal colony with lots of babies and a couple of penguins. Hoped to see dolphins but none around and the wrong season for whales. Staff did try very hard to find more sea wildlife. 1.5 hrs was a bit too long for my liking, especially as we didn’t see... More

My wife and I did this trip early in the day at 09.30 and not sure if this was the reason but we saw two whales, several dolphin, seals hunting and even a single penguin! Great tour well and safely organised and would recommend this company. They provide you with water and a dried fruit snack during the trip.

Unfortunately we didn't see any whales, but we saw a lot of dolphins and seals swimming together. The tour was nice but just a bid short. The monitors are friendly as well.

We went on a marine encounter adventure with Ocean Blue Adventures and we had a great time. From the beach launch to the beach landing on the return, it was fun all around. You start off at their office where you get a short briefing about what to expect, as well as safety aspects of the journey. You then get... More

In spite of not seeing any dolphins, this was a great trip. We saw a huge colony of seals and sea birds. The boat trip was great fun, comfortable and modern. The scenery was spectacular which made the trip special. The company provided a bottle of water and a snack for every customer. It's like looking for lions on a... More

A really enjoyable trip out on the boat this morning. Saw lots of seals at Robberg then went out to the main ocean looking for humpbacks. Sadly none, it is a bit late in the season for them. Did see a Brides whale. Lots of friendly dolphins around Kerubooms. The guide was so friendly and informative. The captain was very... More
