"Ocean Blue Adventures, is the original company in South Africa to conduct professional conservation orientated whale and dolphin marine eco-tours. In Cooperation with the Qolweni Community Development Trust the emphasis of all our operations is placed on Conservation through Community Development, Education and Research. Ocean Blue Adventure's aim is to give a holistic real marine experience to all our guests aimed at raising awareness of Marine Mammal Conservation and the direct need to realistically conserve our oceans which include:
-Sponsor A Child
-Whale, Dolphins and Seals
-Pelagic and other Seabirds
-Sharks and Fish
-Maritime and Local History
We are the proud holders of a specialist permit (COVERS 3RD PARTY, INSURANCE ETC) which allows us (when possible) to carefully approach our whales, offering our guests the unequalled opportunity of a really up-close and personal encounter with these majestic animals. Ocean Blue Adventures prides itself on the experienced qualifications and enthusiasm of our informative guides (naturalists) as well as our vast knowledge and passion for our marine environment. As they are wild mammals and we are visiting them in their own territory, we are acutely aware of not encroaching on them and we strive to ensure that they remain totally wild and unharassed.
On all of our tours our guests' comfort and safety is of paramount importance, our custom-built craft are fully equipped with life jackets, including children's, and all necessary safety equipment, high quality warm and waterproof all-weather gear is provided, as is sun block and refreshments. Ocean Blue Adventures is actively involved in the community of Plettenberg Bay, through the volunteer programs of the ORCA foundation:
Siyakula Pre School
Volunteers spend one day a week working with the children at the pre-school teaching them about marine conservation, playing games, teaching songs and doing skits. Our Sponsor-a-Child Program is in full swing.
Learning By Doing
One of the primary goals of the ORCA foundation is to educate. By taking local school children on a tour of the bay and educating them about conservation we increase the possibility of keeping the bay pristine for future generations.
