Whale Sightings – Simon’s Town

We’ve been seeing whales in the bay since the beginning of May. These 2 Orcas swam past The Lookout early on 9 May and since then we have had whale sightings at least every second day and the season hasn’t even started yet! Hopefully this is a sign that there will be plenty of whales to view this year.


Navy’s cannon firing exercises – Simon’s Town

On Tuesday as we were passing Lower North Battery, just on the outskirts of Simon’s Town, one of the Navy’s regular firing exercises was underway.

The sound quality on the video doesn’t do it justice; the noise was absolutely deafening!

We could still hear the guns on our return to The Lookout, nearly 5 km away on the other side of Simon’s Town.
