Whale Watching from Plettenberg Bay, South Africa

No holiday to the Cape of South Africa would be complete without some whale-watching. Plettenberg Bay in the Western Cape offers boat trips from its beach out into the calmer waters of its bay to look for them. There are also dolphins to be seen, as well as the beautiful forested coastline. Most of the trips are done on high speed boats to cover a larger area in the search, but once the whales are found the engines are cut as they swim right past the boat.
