Robberg Nature and Marine Reserve is a 4km long peninsula south east of Plett, and due to the location of it on the South African coast, it acts as a speed bump to the sea life that migrates up and down the coast. There is a huge Cape Fur seal colony at the foot of the peninsula in the bay, and whales are often seen during in the bay in the whale migration season, Great Whites have been seen in the bay around the time when seal pups are young. Theres also a colony of penguins that are here part of the year.
Doing a sea safari is an excellent way to get up close and see the sealife in the bay. Ocean Blue Adventures and Ocean Safaris both have close encounter permits, meaning they are allowed up close to the sea life. Most trips see some dolphins, seals are always seen, but shark and whale sightings are obviously seasonal! Trips are on 15 person speed boats and last 2 hours or so, costing about R270.
