Ivanhoe Sea Safaris

About Ivanhoe Sea Safaris

Boat Based Whale Watching was first established in South Africa about 20 years ago and since then it has grown in popularity. The ability to see these amazing sea giants up close is something quite unlike anything you will ever experience.   These gentle giants leave you deeply aware of how insignificant we are in the greater picture, 8 - 10 times the average size of a male elephant and so “ugly it becomes breathtakingly beautiful”. Ivanhoe Sea Safaris operates from the quaint fishing harbor of Gansbaai otherwise known as Goose Bay and is the permit holder for area 6 of Walker Bay, argued as the best whale watching location in the world, a little past the coast of Hermanus.  A trip on “The Ivanhoe” will treat you to the best whale in experience in South Africa!
