Captain Jack's is the only licensed Whale & Dolphin operator in Hout Bay. As soon as there's a sighting of these amazing creatures, we can get you out to see them... fast!

Our Whale Watching trips are 2 hours long. We head out towards Kommetjie via Noordhoek and look for whales and sea life all along the way. While we cannot guarantee whale sightings, our expert guide will answer all your sea life questions and ensure that your trip is memorable.


  • Ride on an exhilarating high-speed boat
  • Whales sighted during June to November
  • Dolphins sighted all-year round
  • Beautiful costal views


Dolphins regularly visit the bay to feed and frolic. Between June and November of each year, the Southern Right Whale passes through, journeying from the Cold Antarctica to calve in the warm waters around Cape Town.

There’s nothing more exciting than seeing real wildlife in one of the most stunning bays in the world! We have Whales, Dolphins and Seals all visiting regularly and we are uniquely positioned to be the only boat operator that can get you out to see them as soon as they appear.

Truly an amazing experience and one you’ll never forget!
