We have come a long way from its humble beginnings back in 1997 when sunbathers would be invited off of the beach for a trip on a small inflatable to go look for whales, dolphins and whatever other marine life they could find. In 1999 Ocean Safaris was formerly established as the first Permitted (legal) Whale Watching Company in Plettenberg Bay and the Garden Route. At this point Ocean Safaris started to use twin-hulled ski-boats launched off the beach, allowing for more passengers to be accommodated in greater safety. We have a long standing relationship with the South African Boat-Based Whale-Watching Association (SABBWWA), which was started in 1998 in an effort to ensure the responsible and sustainable growth of this new eco-activity in the country. As such, Ocean Safaris has played a pivotal role in establishing the guidelines under which all activities of its type are conducted in South Africa.
