A Whale Of A Heritage Route in Cape Town maintains a whale sightings log for the west shore of False Bay which records what a field force of approximately 200 plus spotters see from their homes, whilst driving in their cars or from boats. It also offers a cellphone hotline that provides the latest information received on sightings in and around Cape Town – 079 391 2105.

Graphs are also available that show sightings trends.

The operation also maintains dedicated whale sightings logs for St Helena Bay, the Atlantic Seaboard to capture reports from visitors on circular trips.

If you see a whale or a school of dolphins, please contribute to the sightings logs by texting the information to the Barons Volkswagen whale watch hotline – 079 391 2105.
