Mid May – Mid Dec Annually
This is an awesome two hour tour to explore the coastline in search of whales. This tour can be done from Richards Bay (leave from the harbour) or St Lucia (launch from the beach).
Sightings are not guaranteed and a 40% refund will be given if no whales are spotted.
Whale Watching St Lucia is a magical 2 hour St Lucia tour taking you as close as 50 meters from the giants of the deep. Humpback whales are the most commonly spotted, but Minky’s, Right and Sperm whales are also seen. Whale Watching St Lucia begins with a high energy surf launch which requires decent “holding on strength”. For this reason, we accept only children 12 years or older.
Our popular whale and dolphin watching boat trip is now available in Richard’s bay. Richard’s Bay whale or dolphin trips give you 2 hours ON the OPEN ocean.
From the end of May till the beginning of December the Humpback Whales migrate past the Kwa-Zulu Natal Coastline, and our legal permit allows us to go as close as 50m from these gentle giants of the ocean. Bonus sightings of shark, flying fish, turtles and various species of dolphin are a possibility.
We depart from a safe jetty in the Tuzi Gazi small craft harbour of the Port of Richards bay – it will take 15-20 min to get permission from Port Control to leave the harbour and go into the open ocean – please keep this in mind – we will be on the open ocean for 2 hours – or closest to 2 hours. IF the weather turns bad, we will cancel the cruise, and you will get a full refund.
Children under 5 years old are not allowed to participate. Children between 6 and 10 years old pay a reduced child rate.
