TAKE A LOOK: Massive 'super-groups' of whales are travelling along SA's West Coas

Large super-groups of Humpback whales, reaching as many as 150 per group, are gathering off Dassen Island, some 45 kilometres south of Saldanha Bay.

There could be as many as 600 of the whales aggregating here, before making their way to Cape Point as part of their migration from polar summer feeding grounds to winter calving and nursery grounds.

With the increased attention they are getting, authorities are urging ships entering and exiting the harbours of Cape Town (about 5km away) as well as Saldanha Bay to steer at least 300 metres clear of the massive groups.
