Hout Bay in the News

Hout Bay in the News

Exciting news that includes Hout Bay

Look! Mass gatherings of humpback whales grace the West Coast.

“The feeding group had already dispersed, and we spotted only a few individuals here and there. We routed back along the coast to the Waterfront, spotting paddlers, haviside dolphins, and dragons in Hout Bay, as well as a paraglider pilot thermalling around Lion’s Head.”

In a Facebook post, Marine Conservation Photographer Jean Tresfon gave a detailed description of how Steve Benjamin from Animal Ocean asked him to take a flight to look at the whales.

The post reads:
“Taking off into clear blue skies with a light southeaster blowing. We started by flying to Robben Island to check the northwest side of the island. This is often a popular spot for the whales to gather. No whales spotted, not even the southern right or two that are usually around! From Three Anchor Bay to Oudeschip, there were plenty of small bait balls near the surface, some with only a few birds working and others with hundreds of seals smashing the surface into a foam.”
