Description:

South Africa offers some of the best land-based whale watching in the world, with over half of the world's species either resident here, returning to our waters each year to mate or calve, or following migration routes along our coastlines.This presents unique opportunities for anyone interested in observing these elusive mammals of the oceans.The reasons for such diversity are partly the geographical position of South Africa as one of the few land masses within relatively close proximity of the whales' Antarctic feeding grounds.

Watching Whales & Dolphins in Southern Africa is an essential guide to watching the region’s 12 more common species. In addition to species accounts and charts that aid identification, this guide provides detailed information on cetaceans – their evolution, senses, behaviour, classification and anatomy. Multiple, clear images, both photographic and illustrated, help identify each species by showing how to read the partial signs that cetaceans usually offer, such as a flipper, tail, or even just their 'blow'.
