The season starts in June and ends November. No experience could be more satisfying than seeing the Humpback whale playfully and acrobatically thrusting its giant body clear out of the ocean. The whale watching tour is an unforgettable, unique lifetime experience and not to be missed.
The season starts in November and ends March. Once a year you can see one of natures many wonders unleashed when about 500 loggerhead and 150 leatherback turtles come ashore to lay their eggs. It has been perhaps 15 or 20 years since the turtle has felt solid ground beneath her half-tonne body. Her stay will be short but by the time she leaves, 120 eggs will be nestled beneath the sand for two months to recommence this fragile and miraculous cycle. Entwined in this splendour is a tale of survival in its most brutal form. This delicate prehistoric species will hatch in its hundreds, a few will not even reach the ocean and only a handful will make it to maturity, an estimated 1 in 500 hatchlings. The turtle nesting's have formed the basis of a healthy eco-tourism exercise in the iSimangaliso / Greater St Lucia Wetland Park every year. Nature conservation officers and tour operators take tourists during the breeding season for an experience of a lifetime.
