Just like South Africa has the ‘Big 5’ in safari terms; we also have The Marine Big 5. The rich waters of Walker Bay teem with marine life in abundance, and a visit to The Marine means you can enjoy the Big 5 during your stay; you can even spot the whales from the comfort of your suite!
The Marine Big 5
The Southern Right Whale journeys to our bay from June to November to calve. The Marine is perfectly positioned to offer some of the best land-based whale watching in the world, we can even organise a boat trip for you should you wish to get closer.
Spy pods of dolphins swimming in the surf while enjoying a cocktail on the terrace. Plus you can go on the same boat trip as above where you’ll spot both whales and dolphins, among a myriad of other sea life.
Spot the sprightly seal lazing in the harbour, swimming in the sea, as well as on a boat trip to see the larger creatures.
Just across from Walker Bay thrives one of the greatest densities of the endangered Great White Shark in the world. We will happily organise a shark cage diving trip, where you’ll be able to get up close with the great beasts of the deep.
This is a rare opportunity to see the African penguin in its natural habitat; we’ll arrange a tour to Stony Point, one of only three land-based colonies in the country.
