Pelagic Trip

R2,850.00

Description

The Pelagic trip is a Full Day trip filled with excitement. We travel up to 25 Nautical Miles away from the Falsebay harbor to dive, free dive or snorkel with the precious pelagic life that can be found there. Some of the most common sightings include blue sharks, pelagic birds, mako sharks, pelagic fish, and turtles Рor even just the blue crystal clear water.

Experiencing a pelagic trip is a special adventure. You will be encompassed by the ocean and nature. You will get to meet the incredible creatures that have made the pelagic their home. The shortfin mako shark, as well as the blue shark,  are fantastic to look at. Each shark with their own remarkable features. The shortfin mako shark is among one of the fastest swimming marine animals in our oceans. It is able to reach an impressive speed of 72km/h to hunt. They are solitary and hunt alone. Blue sharks, on the other hand, are not as quick but are known to be in schools that hunt together to successfully catch their prey.

Pelagic fish include the Sunfish, Yellowtail, Yellowfin Tuna, Longfin Tuna, Bonita, Snoek and Dorado. These can often be found hovering about the boat. On occasion, the boat may be accompanied by dolphins, and on the way to, and from the pelagic – a whale might make an appearance. These whales include Orca Whales, Pilot Whales, Humpback Whales, Sperm Whales, and Southern Right Whales.

Not just do we find incredible underwater life, but we also have great pelagic birds. These include the Atlantic Yellow-nosed Albatross, the shy Albatross, White Breasted Cormorant, Cape Gannet and more.

A worthy mention is that none of the pelagic life is guaranteed, it is nature after all.
