Gqeberha (Port Elizabeth)


Raggy Charters and Blu-Pebbles Tours and Transfer offer expertly guided whale, dolphin, and African penguin watching tours in Gqeberha (PE). Raggy Charters are licensed boat-based based Whale Watching permit holders with shark cage diving permits. Algoa Bay is popularly known as the Bottlenose Dolphin Capital of the World.

Outside of the whale watching season, Raggy Charters specializes in Penguin Island Cruises, which carry tourists to St. Croix Island. This island is home to the world's largest breeding colony of the endangered African Penguin.

What to Expect on a Sea Cruise?
Bottlenose Dolphins, Common Dolphins, Humpback Dolphins, Bryde’s Whales, Minke Whales, Southern Right Whales, Humpback Whales, Cape Fur Seals, various species of sharks (Great White Sharks), Cape Gannets, and multiple species of Pelagic Birds including Terns, Petrels, Skuas, Shearwaters, and Albatrosses, can be found in the Algoa Bay.

Funds from whale-watching boat cruises, African penguin boat cruises, and other marine eco-tours with Raggy Charters are used to fund the Baywatch Project.


The cruise operator cannot guarantee animal sightings on any cruise. The cruise operator offers guests the opportunity to view wild animals which will move around at their own will and therefore we cannot be held responsible for the movements of these animals. Guests who are taken to St Croix are guaranteed to see African penguins, and therefore no refund will be given if other marine animals are not spotted. If absolutely no animals are sighted compensation, in the form of a free ticket for the next boat trip, may be given at the discretion of the skipper.
