Otter Research Tours
Come walk with us and help track the Wild Otters. We gather data and mark their location with GPS. A great few hours of rambling under the care of an expert otter tracker, who is passionate about the Cape Clawless Otter.
Your guide was once a hard-working salvager of shipwrecks around the Southern African Coast and has many years of local knowledge of the wrecks and wreck-sites. We only take photos and tales away with us, as our company firmly believes in preserving our country’s underwater heritage for all.
RIB Boat Tours
Hop aboard one of the “Sea Otter” fleet of boats for an hour or two – What better way to do this, than on a fast rigid inflatable boat. Guests are likely to see some wonderful sea creatures: Cape Fur Seals, Penguins, Basking Sharks, Cape Clawless Otters, Albatross, Cape Gannets, Petrels, Sunfish and Dolphins. As the RIB boats can be very lively, this tour is specifically designed for 4-8 fit and healthy persons, aged between 12 and 45 years old. We do have an option of a more sedate boat trip and this is usually available on request.
Dawn Patrol Trips
Our ‘Brekkie-at-sea’ trip is a great way to enjoy a few morning hours out on the ocean with a special partner or with a few close friends and a hamper of eats and refreshments… Bring your own or choose and book a healthy hamper option from our chef, the day before. The fun-loving ex pirate – Captain Coconut is your ever attentive host and he knows a thing or two about local sea life and landmarks. Meals and Liquid Refreshments are for your own account, of course.
