The sun is shining, the waves are breaking and you gaze out across the beautiful blue bay to the Tsitsikamma Mountains beyond. Lounging on the sheltered beaches of Plettenberg Bay, you may be forgiven for thinking that this is it. This is the best that Plett has to offer. We’d like to challenge you take another step, a small leap really, beyond the breakers and onto or into the water for another unforgettable Plett adventure – our ocean adventures:
The ultimate Plett luxury experience. Enjoy a sail across the bay on the 44ft Ocean Rhythm yacht, choosing from a morning, afternoon or sunset trip. Guests can enjoy fishing, swimming or snorkelling, complimentary snacks and a cash bar for a serene, relaxing exploration of the bay.
If you’re looking for encounters with marine animals, then take a safari with Ocean Blue Adventures. In Whale Season, visitors will be amazed by the antics of these oceanic giants, most commonly Southern Right and Humpback Whales. In the off-season, whales are still sighted, but less frequently, and tourists can expect to encounter marine birds, playful seals, sharks and delightful dolphins.
When you’ve seen all there is to see above the water, it’s time to sink beneath the waves and explore the reefs of the Garden Route. Plettenberg Bay and the Southern Cape coastline is an excellent place for scuba diving, with an abundance of colourful soft corals and plentiful marine life. Try a scuba dive inside the Tsitsikamma National Park, as a Marine Protected Area, Storm’s River Mouth can showcase the underwater beauty of the area like nowhere else.
Get up close and personal with the lively Cape Fur Seals of Robberg. Offshore Adventures offers a swimming and snorkelling excursion to the seal colony – expect to be amazed by the underwater antics of these curious creatures as they fly through the water, close-up and curious one minute and acrobatic the next.
The waterways of Plettenberg Bay are your playground when it comes to stand up paddling (SUP). Standing up and paddling is not only excellent exercise but allows paddlers to really enjoy the beautiful and changing views of river, lagoon and ocean, this is sure to be one of the highlights of your Plett holiday.
