Sea Birding Pelagic Trips South Africa, Cape Town Pelagics

  

  Destination - Cape Town

 
   

Approaching a fishing trawler off the continental shelf near Cape Town is a birding experience that remains engraved in the memory forever. The opportunity to see thousands of albatrosses of up to seven species just an arm's length away is luring increasing numbers of birders to Africa's southern tip.

Day trippers in winter regularly see over 10,000 seabirds of up to 30 species, making it arguably the world's most mind-blowing yet accessible sea birding experience.

Furthermore, if you are a hardened sea watcher (or a weakened seafarer) the Cape Peninsula also offers some of the world's best land-based sea birding.
