You don’t really need 3 days. One good dove is all you need. And if you missed the great white, it’s pretty tiring and cold to do it again.

We took the boat from Hout Bay. Plenty of seals. It only takes an hour to complete. Good idea to see the township nearby to get an idea of the local living standard while you’re there.
