Enjoy a cruise around the world-famous Dyer Island where you might be fortunate enough to see the Marine Big 5.


Dyer Island Cruises operates around the world-famous Dyer Island where you might be fortunate enough to see the Marine Big 5: Southern Right/Humpback/Bryde’s Whales, sharks around the renowned Shark Alley, Cape Fur Seals, the endangered African Penguin, and various visiting dolphin species. The area is also home to a variety of seabirds.

Our Southern Right Season is normally from June – December, but for the rest of the year, we occasionally see Humpback and Bryde’s whales in our area. We have an on-board biologist and experienced crew who promise an educational, life-changing experience.

From January – May all morning trips include coffee/tea and muffins on arrival and a light lunch after the trip. Guests doing an afternoon trip can enjoy a light lunch on arrival followed by warm soup and bread after the trip. During Southern Right season coffee/tea and muffins are served upon arrival followed by warm soup and bread afterward.

All trips include a dedicated safety and conservation briefing before departure and a debrief afterward. We provide safety jackets and wet weather gear. After a short walk to the harbour we board the custom-designed vessel, Dream Catcher and the adventure will commence. All operations run from The Great White House in Kleinbaai and include a licensed restaurant and bar, curio shop, and clean toilet facilities.

Quality trip footage can be bought and you will receive a downloadable link.
A free visit to the African Penguin and Seabird Sanctuary is also included. Dyer Island Cruises supports The Dyer Island Conservation Trust under which we have a number of conservation and community projects.
