Orca Whales was seen in Langebaan Lagoon! West Coast

Posted on January 20, 2017 by Gideon Langart in Sailing, West Coast Places of Interest

Orcas- Killer whales, are often sighted in the waters around the Cape, there have been some amazing footage from places like False Bay, Simon’s Town and Gansbaai, it’s rare to see Orcas in the Langebaan Lagoon!

A Langebaan sailing school was on the lagoon with students when they saw Two Orcas in the water, a rare sight, but maybe one which will become more common. Photos were posted to Atlantic Yachting School’s Facebook page and was soon shared by many.

These beautiful animals were  seen about 20 metres from their  boat. It was said that the whales seemed  young but were a good size – about same as the boat – which is 10 metres.

Loving the West Coast!
