Who we are

Under the leadership of Marlon Baartman, who has a wealth of experience with Ocean Safaris, he took the reins of the enterprise in 2015. As a family-operated venture, Ocean Safaris remains steadfast in upholding the original vision of delivering exceptional ocean safari experiences to every passenger. Proud members of the South African Boat-Based Whale Watching Association (SABBWWA), we diligently adhere to regulations that foster the sustainable development of new eco-activities within South Africa.

With years of skipper expertise, Marlon and guide Ashwynn Baartman collectively steer Ocean Safaris, positioning us as a foremost ocean tour and whale watching enterprise in the Western Cape. Our commitment extends not only to the safety and welfare of the marine life we encounter but also to our passengers. Each of our skippers is officially trained and accredited by the South African Maritime Safety Association, assuring the highest standards of operation.

While our primary offices are situated within the Garden Route, we extend our services to clients from across the globe.

We practice safety first

Safety is our top priority. We are dedicated to safeguarding the well-being of all our passengers and the creatures we encounter. We achieve this by adhering rigorously to the strict rules and regulations established by the South African Maritime Safety Association and theĀ SABBWWA.

Our tours

We accommodate both private groups, with capacities ranging up to 30 passengers, and smaller gatherings, in addition to offering group tours and marine safaris. Ocean Safaris stands as a fully BBBEE Company, committed to providing opportunities within our industry to previously disadvantaged South Africans.
