I managed to do the OS today because it was rescheduled due to bad weather. Our guide Kevin was excellent and very informative, we managed to see dolphins, Seals, Sun fish the penguins and whales were shy so we didnt really get to see more than a glimpse. Worth the wait and money

Thank you for joining us, yes the sea conditions can be very unpredictable in Cape Town. However seeing this stunning City and picturesque Table Mount from the boat is also incredible experience.
