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

A group of us did the Ocean Safari with Simon at the helm. The trip was fabulous and we saw most of the marine life we could have seen. We saw seals, dolphins and sun fish, but the highlight was seeing two southern right whales. Simon was an excellent guide and the trip was excellent. This is a great way to spend an hour and a half if you are in Cape Town.

Had a fabulous morning on perfectly calm waters seeing dolphins, dusky, and loads of humpback whales playing and feeding. A must experience made even better by Avril and rhiad who were excellent. Thanks so much

We booked well in advance for the Ocean Safari in which we were advised that closer to the time they would let us know if it were to take place on the day if they could get more people on the trip. We prepared for the trip and were very excited however, we got to the office and they told us that they could not take us as they had nobody else booked and they would process a refund. This is terrible customer service for a reputable company!

Thank you for your feedback, we understand your frustration that you were unable to go out on the Ocean Safari. The Mango 2-4-1 deal clearly states that you have to be booked onto an existing trip and unfortunately no other pax joined on. We do have minimum numbers required to run a trip and our company policy is either to try reschedule or a full refund provided, which we honoured.

I had a wonderful experience on this 90+ minute ocean safari. Our skipper/guide Michael was perfect - expert with maneuvering the boat, knowledgeable about the marine life, and funny in his commentary. This smaller open boat was the perfect vessel - fast in getting us out to sea, allowed us to feel the sunshine and the wind and feel very close to the water, and silent when we were floating so that the whales would not be frightened off by the signature of the watercraft. And yes, Michael knew just where to go (even in the off-season that we are now in) to spot a mother/calf pair that Michael adeptly approached and then we sat and watched them surface countless times at a surprisingly close distance. I'll never forget the sound of the whales breathing in the air as they breached the surface. It was a perfect length of time and such a wonderful experience. I highly recommend it!

Had a great time on the water. It was a really wavy day, so we didn't end up seeing too much wildlife, but I really did enjoy getting out on the ocean nevertheless. There were only 2 of us, but Ocean X ran the tour anyways, despite having probably made no money off of the excursion. So I was grateful for this. Daniel was a knowledgeable, friendly guide, and I appreciated that he made an effort to keep us entertained, and that he took a detour to show us how fast the boat could go.
Thanks!

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.

This was a great experience! The tour guide Simon was really professional and easy-going! Even though me and my friend didn’t get to see any whales or dolphins we had a wonderful time on the boat. We got to see seals, African penguins and some bird life. Simon said he felt frustrated because on the earlier trip on that day with another group they had seen dolphins, but now the dolphins didn’t show up. He went to places they usually were “hanging around” and tried so hard to find them for us, but nope, they didn’t show up this time. Anyway, I would recommend this trip to anyone, and I could definitely do this trip again. A great experience! Thank you Simon!
