Dr Simon Elwen

Dr Simon Elwen, director of Sea Search Africa wrote an interesting article in Cape Town Community, here the link to the full article.

In the article, he gives suggestions about where to see dolphins.



On the west coast of Cape town : Atlantic Ocean


Dusky dolphins around  Hout Bay


Heaviside’s dolphins around Granger Bay especially in Bloubergstrand


In False Bay : Indian Ocean

FB2 - Copie

Bottlenose dolphins


Humpback dolphins are pretty rare in False Bay.


Common dolphins don’t live close to the beach but they can be best seen from elevated places like Boyes Drive, above Kalk Bay, R44 south of Gordon’s Bay.
