A veritable Whale Fest!

Whale Fest on our doorstep!


There was a veritable Whale Fest this morning directly in front of The Lookout;

Colin didn’t know where to point his camera! Some were a little further out, but one

ventured so close to the shoreline.


And then this afternoon we had a jumper in the middle of the bay.


We would love to share these amazing views with you  (and “our” whales)why not stay with us?

Kite Surfers


These two Kite Surfers entertained us with their amazing skills on Saturday morning.

There is always something going on in the bay.


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.


A beautiful Autumn morning in Simon’s Town


It is such a beautiful morning in Simon’s Town that Colin and I couldn’t resist a short stroll along the seafront to Fisherman’s Beach, which is just minutes away from The Lookout.
