Gansbaai developed around a fresh water fountain frequented by wild geese. Later a harbour was built around the fountain and a (now abolished) whaling station was erected in De Kelders, just outside of town. Gansbaai is a quaint little fishing village that bloomed into the Great White Capital of the World. The bountiful landscapes and oceans around gives way to a multitude of outdoor activities and spectacular views to behold. Also, who can forget the two celebrities that lend Gansbaai the name Big 2 Town, the graceful Southern Right Whales and the famous Great White Sharks. *
