Welcome to Captain Jacks

Captain Jacks is the only licensed Whale and Dolphin watching operator in Hout Bay. As soon as there is a sighting of either of these magnificent creatures, we can get you out to see them on our ready-to-go 400 bhp Gemini commercial power boat with one of our knowledgeable and informative Skippers.

On the Atlantic seaboard, Hout Bay is just 20 minutes from Cape Town and is one of the most stunning bays in the world. An archetypal Pirates Cove, it’s the perfect place to start your Whale, Dolphin and Seal watching adventure. There are Southern Right, Humpback and Bryde Whales, Long Beaked Common and Heavyside Dolphins, Sun Fish and Cape Fur Seals in abundance.

Two amazing ocean adventures to choose from
