Bird Island Cruise
Starting From R 3 800
EXPERIENCEOur Bird Island Cruise is an 8 hour cruise. We meet at 7am at the Algoa bay Yacht club, departing after a short briefing and returning in the early afternoon around 15:00. The cost of the cruise is R3800 per person with a minimum of 4 people required. If you cannot meet this minimum requirement we will make every effort to find a group for you to join. Bird Island is home to 250,000 Cape Gannets, the largest breeding colony of these birds on the planet. The 19 hectare island is fairly flat which allows our guests close-up views of the Cape gannets and African penguins which nest on the island. The Bird Island group also consists of Stag Island, Seal Island, and Black Rocks. Black Rocks is home to 4,000 playful Cape fur seals and guests also have a good chance of seeing great white sharks as they feed in this area. These islands are nearly 60km away from Port Elizabeth, making it a full-day excursion, so it needs as early a departure as possible. The Bird Island group, along with the St Croix Island group, recently became part of the Addo Elephant National Park, allowing rangers to patrol the islands in aid of conservation efforts to protect the African penguin population. As they are Marine Protect-ed Areas, please note that guests are not allowed to actually go on to the islands. Prices are subject to change.
