PLEASE don’t let the weather put you off from booking your whale trip with us as soon as possible, as the moment the weather turns good again and seas calm seats are going to be limited and demand great!
We have had magnificent sightings of HUMPBACK WHALES on each trip that we could go out.
On the 11th of July we saw the first HUMPBACK WHALE newborn calf for the season and lots of oeh’s and ah’s from the satisfied clientele onboard.
ADVANTAGE CHARTER vessels boasts enthusiastic skipper/guides Bien,Berno,Danie, Francois and Christiaan who has a treasure house full of knowledge about these awesome mammals – and you are sure to have a memory in those hours at sea that will last a lifetime.
In 2009 we had a Dutch couple that visited South Africa, Henk and Jorijke Koelewijn – they also did the WHALE WATCHING trip with ADVANTAGE CHARTER in ST LUCIA – as well as a visit to the Game Reserve, the HIPPO/CROC tour – the ZULU village ect - …………to make a long story short………..
Straight after their visit to St Lucia, they were heading back to Durban airport when they were in a very bad car accident.
This accident saw them for many weeks in Empangeni Hospital where they were treated for multiple injuries, after weeks of intensive care they returned to Holland, and after arriving back in Holland Jorijke’s health deteriorated and both her legs had to be amputated. Mentioning that they are a young couple in their twenties, this was surely an enormous shock.
We were extremely excited two weeks ago to see Henk and Jorijke BACK in ST LUCIA SOUTH AFRICA – bringing her parents to come and enjoy what they enjoyed two years ago before the tragic accident, and they again went WHALE WATCHING.
Jorijke is now in a wheelchair and with care we carried her onto the boat and made her sit safely onboard - ANOTHER amazing activity that they will never forget –
HUMPBACK whales abound along this coastline this time of the year, and we see loads of dolphin – with ADVANTAGE CHARTER being a legal permit holder since 1998 you are assured to enjoy the gentle giants of the ocean from as close as 50m’s!
