Gansbaai and Kleinbaai in the Overberg on the Cape Whale Coast

Gansbaai, beyond De Kelders on the R43 (about a 35 minute drive from Hermanus.) There, depending on your nerves you can go boat-based whale watching, scuba diving or shark-cage diving.

There are 4x4 trips, plane trips, Danger Point lighthouse to visit and, to end the day, sundown boat trips. Gansbaai is named the Big2 town after the numerous Great White Sharks that cruise in the waters east of Danger Point peninsula and the many Southern Right Whales that hang out around the shores on the western side of Danger Point. Here you will find various restaurants and bars in and around Main Street and many arts and crafts shops. Don’t forget to visit the harbour.

Kleinbaai

This is a lovely picturesque little fishing village surrounded by milkwood trees and summer daisies. It is situated on the eastern side of the Danger Point peninsula and it makes the ideal launching site for local fishermen to fish in the Dyer Island area. The white shark diving, whale watching and Dyer and Geyser Island tours all operate from the boat launching facilities at the small but natural harbour of Kleinbaai.
