The best places to see whales and dolphins in the wild

Enjoy Remarkable Displays of Water Acrobatics

Whale and dolphin watching is a popular activity in many destinations, allowing you to get up close and personal with these majestic marine creatures in a safe and ethical way. Most trips are by boat, but some can involve aerial views from small planes or helicopters, and often it's possible to spot both whales and dolphins directly from the shore too!

These are our favourite locations for seeing whales and dolphins:

- South Africa - Cape Town, Plettenberg Bay, Hermanus and the Garden Route

- Mozambique – Inhambane, Vilanculos, and the Bazaruto Archipelago

- Madagascar - Ile Sainte Marie and Masoala National Park

- Sri Lanka - Mirissa and Trincomalee

There's something so special about seeing whales up close in the wild, and just for a few moments being part of their mysterious marine world.
