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.
