Turtle Egg Laying and Whale Watching
A giant sea turtle that can weigh over 800 kgs. Females will lay approximately 1,000 eggs in a season. This is done by laying a batch of 120 eggs every 9 to 15 days. They return to the coast every 1 to 5 years.
This is a smaller Sea Turtle weighing up to 138 kg. Females emerge at night in late Spring to lay about 500 eggs in batches of 100 at 15 day intervals. Most return to nest after 2 to 3 years.
May to November. Whale sightings are guaranteed.
The whales pass St. Lucia on a migration route between the Antarctic and Northern Mozambique and Madagascar, where they breed.
The majority of sightings are of Humpbacks, which tend to be more spectacular than the Southern Rights. South Africa is the fifth largest whale watching country in the world.
Sodwana Bay Fishing and Diving
A premier destination because of the unspoilt coral reefs. There is a large variety of fish including the coelacanth, blue marlin, whales, dolphins, sharks. It is also popular because of the variety of depths and dive sites that are available to divers. The entire area measures some 50kms and is a protected area up to 3 nautical miles out to sea.
There are plenty of trails through the unspoilt dune forest where one can encounter small game and vervet and samango monkeys.
