Our sardine run dates & trip information are set for 2014.
Please visit our website www.offshoreportstjohns.com for all the information.
We had an incredible sardine run 2013 with outstanding sightings. The ocean treated us to exceptional visibility for most of the sardine run and we were all incredibly privileged to spend time with the migrating humpback whales, bottlenose dolphins (our resident population), common dolphins feeding on sardines, common dolphins in large pods chasing after sardines, sail fish on the bait balls, 4 species of tuna on the action, many species of shark and the sighting of a cape fur seal.
Mother Nature gave us good launch days with not a single launch day lost this year due to bad weather.
All local and international clients that spent time with us this year had a blast of a time with exciting stories told over a few cold beers in the evenings.
We look forward to what sardine run 2014 has to offer us here, with our base in beautiful Port St John's, Wild coast, South Africa.

During the workshop students have an option of staying here at the lodge or camping in our beautiful garden on the farm. All meals will be provided. Self-catering optional.
