What to do in and around Kleinbaai and the Cape Overberg

     Whale Watching

This area is regarded as one of the best whale-watching sites in the world, which is a further reason for visiting between June and December. Licensed boats are allowed to approach within 50 meters of whales and it is not unusual to find yourself wet from the spray of their blowholes.

The appealing little village of Kleinbaai lies at Danger Point Peninsula, where shark diving and whale watching are world-renowned draw cards. As a result Kleinbaai, which is only 6 kilometers from the town of Gansbaai, is relatively unknown, although its position amongst milkwood trees, fragrant weather and summer wild flowers makes it the perfect break-away from the city. It is only 2 hours drive from Cape Town and half an hours drive from Hermanus.

Come view the Southern Right Whales as they arrive to give birth where cold Atlantic Ocean meets the warm Indian Ocean at Cape Agulhas, or “The Cape of Storms”, the most southern tip of Africa, only an hour’s drive from Kleinbaai.

Kleinbaai lies next to Danger Point Peninsula Nature reserve with it’s famous lighthouse. It is possibly the main reason for Gansbaai’s popular nature-based tourism. It is from the natural harbor of Kleinbaai that shark-diving boats allow visitors to get ‘up close and personal’ with Great Whites (Carcharodon Carcharias) that frequent these waters in such vast numbers.


     Great White Shark cage diving in Kleinbaai

Dyer Island is one of only a view natural breeding waters for the Great White Shark in the world. The area of water between the mainland and Dyer Island is commonly referred to as ‘shark alley’ attributed to the 50 000 seals that colonize this island and naturally attract sharks, although it is not shark- diving alone that makes a visit to Kleinbaai enticing.

Kleinbaai has a wonderful tidal pool, a perfect swimming area for children while grown-ups can picnic next to the sea in a safe friendly environment. Those who play golf will enjoy Kleinbaai’s own golf course with a sea view, and close enough to walk.

Many families prefer the little village for fishing excursions. Kleinbaai is renowned for it’s angling waters, both from boat and from the rocks. Launch your own boat in the safety of Kleinbaai harbor or book a trip aboard one of the many Shark-cage tourist boats for a memorable sea trip. Cape Salmon and Giant Cob are some of the more common fish caught by fishermen from boats while crayfish and galleon are caught in the pools and galleys at shore. There is a gravel road connecting Kleinbaai along the rugged coast with a number of little rock pools ending at the lighthouse at Danger Point. This track makes it a wonderful hike and, because it is unsuitable for 4X4s, it is a very relaxing hike.

A Large supermarket in Gansbaai will provide all the necessities for your everyday needs like groceries and beverages. The town has plenty of shopping opportunities for a visitor who might have forgotten anything at home.

The Overberg region around Kleinbaai offers the tourist a choice of activities and attractions. From wine-tasting on a wine-farm to mountain-climbing for the adventure-seeker, be sure that whatever intrigues you, you will find it in and around Kleinbaai.
