Pelagic Seabirds of False Bay

The False Bay, here in Cape Town is a fascinating area, and we like to think it is the most beautiful bay in the world. It is a wide body of water with many different eco-systems, including the Kelp Forests that the Sevengill Cow Sharks love, Seal Island hunting ground of our beloved Great White Sharks,  and the secluded rocky coves a favorite birthing spot for the Southern Right Whales.  At African Shark Eco-Charters we get to experience it all, but once in a while we head out to sea past Cape Point with a group of Twitchers to see [...]

Blue Sharks and Mako Sharks of Cape Point
