HI all - my husband and I are planning to visit Storms mouth rest camp in June and wondered when the sightings of dolphins and whales are most reliable?

Many thanks in advance

Marie

Hi Marie we have visited Tsitsikamma and those areas a few years back during September/October and had some sightings of dolphins and whales along the coastline – Dolphin’s we saw frolicking in the sea at Storms River Mouth rest camp. I hope you see them in June as well. Not sure which months are best though for observing them.

Mariek,

We stayed at Stormsriver mouth last July and had some nice dolphin sightings.

It is a bit early in the year for whales, but you never know.

Dolphins are here all year round and we saw some last month. The Southern Right Whales migrate here to breed and calve in the witnter months.
However you see them mostly from August to October although June is also possible.
