Capetonians have been sharing their joy at having spotted dolphins along the Atlantic Seaboard over the past few days.
As many as 37 whale and dolphin species pass through the Cape’s waters. Some of the most common sightings are dusky dolphins. Dolphins were spotted in Hout Bay several times recently.
Cape Town has a number of spots to view dolphins. The Garden Route offers the best chances of dolphin encounters, with charters leaving from Plettenberg Bay, Knysna, and Port Elizabeth.

In the waters surrounding Cape Town you are likely to spot common, bottlenose and dusky dolphins. On a marine tour you may also encounter Heavysides’ dolphins in the Granger Bay area.
