• The Tsitsikamma Canopy Tour® takes place in the magnificent Tsitsikamma indigenous rainforest. Many of the platforms are built around giant Outeniqua Yellowwood trees that are up to 700 years old! Standing within the crown of these giants and looking down at the lush forest floor thirty metres below is an experience of a lifetime. The Canopy Tour starts with a safety briefing at the canopy office. Here your guides will first demonstrate how to slide on the cables and the safety procedures to be followed on the tour, before kitting you up with full body harness, pulley, climbing equipment and safety helmet. Your group will then be transported in an open vehicle to the start of the canopy tour. From the moment you launch off the first platform, a new world unfolds as you slide on a steel cable across to the next viewpoint. Once you arrive at the platform we encourage you to stop for a while and enjoy the view while your guide points out interesting features or facts about the surrounding ecology. All groups are escorted by a lead guide and safety guide at all times. Your safety is paramount and we have strict procedures in place to ensure that you are constantly connected to either the cable or the platform. Each tour lasts typically 2½ hours and upon returning to the office, you will enjoy a well-deserved meal and refreshments. Located at Storms River Village, 45 minutes from Plettenberg Bay and 1hr 30mins from Port Elizabeth. Bookings are essential.
• Whale & Dolphin Watching - Situated in the coastal town of Plettenberg Bay, Ocean Blue offers a rare and powerful experience through permitted boat based whale & dolphin encounters. We also offer an “at one with the ocean” kayaking tour, and township tours. All tours are guided with expert crew and tour operators who are internationally qualified. Ocean Blue is a licensed SABBWWA permit holder, which enables us to approach whales from 50 metres instead of 300 metres. Should the whales approach our vessel we do not have to move away. The guests therefore get an up close experience with these majestic mammals in the bay. Permitted Close Encounter Whale Watching Tours 1 ½ hour close encounter.
