The Ocean Experiences team are only too keen to share the beauty of the ocean as well as the beauty of the Cape Town Atlantic Coastline on our unique Ocean Safari. Like a game drive on the water you will be cruising in style on our RIB boat while seeing the Mother City from a different perspective. During the tour, you have a chance to see Dolphins, Seals, Whales, Penguins, Sun Fish and much more as we make our way to Sea Point, Clifton, Camps Bay and Oudekraal. Beautiful views of the Cape Town mountain range, a chance to see marine life and have some fun on a Gemini 850 RIB Boat all in one trip.

Tour Details

Upon arrival at the shop you will be met by the friendly OceanX crew, followed by the completion of paperwork. The experience starts with an informative safety and marine life briefing. After the briefing you will don your life jacket and head to the boat. Enjoy a 1 - 1.5 hour (weather & marine life dependent) boat ride along the Atlantic Seaboard coastline with stunning views of Table Mountain and the Twelve Apostles mountain range. Keeping a close eye on the ocean and searching for the Marine Big 5 of Cape Town (whales, dolphins, seals, penguins and the allusive sunfish). Bird lovers are also in luck as Cape Town offers a variety of pelagic bird life species.


1 - 1.5 hours (Meeting 30min before, total time to allocate = 2 hours)


We do not feed or chum the waters to attract the marine life, so they are never 100% guaranteed but we have an idea of where they are usually spotted. The Skipper & guides try their utmost best to find and show you the amazing marine life Cape Town has to offer. We go on search for the marine life (An Ocean Safari). So the route is not specific as the Skipper will head in the direction of where the marine life is spotted, whether that be out to sea or staying close to the shoreline. The route is very much weather dependent and at the discretion of the Skipper, who will make the final call.

“The first day we arrived, we didn’t really do much just settled in our apartment and stuff, once all was set things started happening. Today we went out on a speedboat to go search for some sharks, whales and a so called “Mora Mora” that was definitely one hell of an experience, from bumpy waves to penguins and i actually got a nice tan as well thats a bonus. I’ll definitely recommend this experience to anyone who visits Cape Town”


“January 5, 2019 - Air BnB - Sophia "Everyone was very professional. The water and weather were beautiful. The staff is incredibly knowledgable. Would recommend. Unfortunately we didn’t see dolphins or whales but got to see other marine life!"”


“Monica December 29, 2018 - Air BnB - Monica "Fun experience, a bit of adjusting to weather conditions is needed but I recommend this tour!"”


“Amazing way to see some of the sea life that inhabits our shores. We were lucky enough to see dolphins, seals, penguins and even an elusive sun fish who dived before I could snap a pic. Great views over the city too! Thanks for a fun morning.”


“What a beautiful experience, we spotted a huge Wales. Excellent memories. I will recommend this visit.”


“I would highly recommend this tour, being able to go out to sea riding the waves in a speedy rig boat is lots of fun, then being able to spot seals, dolphins & whales with a great tour guide is great value for money. I would definitely go again!”
