As a settlement, Gansbaai came into being in the early 1880′s. Nomadic fishermen, of whom a gentleman with the name of Cornelis Wessels is claimed to be the first, settled on this coastal stretch of the farm “Strandfontein” (Fountain on the beach). The center point was the freshwater fountain next to the present harbor which provided the small but successful community with drinking water. This fountain was home to wild geese and soon the place was known as “Gansgat” (goose-hole), later changed into the more respectable Gansbaai (Goose bay). The name Wessels and those of other early settlers are still the common names in Gansbaai.
