Whale Watching Tours Hermanus

A trip to Hermanus a beautiful town that is the best land based whale watching destination in the world

Visit Hermanus and take a scenic drive to Walker Bay and enjoy shore-based Whale watching (season dependent) before visiting the rare African Penguins at Betty’s Bay (own account) returning to Cape Town via Sir Lowry’s Pass.

The southern right whale, which swims up from Antarctica, usually arrives some time in June. They spend the winter in quiet bays (like Fish Hoek) between the West Coast and Port Elizabeth , mating, calving and generally having some quality time with their families.

A whale seen off South African shores and in Fish Hoek, is the Brydes whale, which is rare elsewhere but quite commonly seen between the West Coast and Port Elizabeth, including Fish Hoek. Other whales that are occasionally seen in False Bay include orcas and sperm whales.
