Whale Watching
Things to do in Hermanus

In the South African winter months from June going into late Springtime November, the Southern Right Whales are sighted frequently along the Western Cape coastlines.

In the charming town of Hermanus, overlooking the stunning Walker Bay, is the world’s best land-based whale-watching spot. Southern Right whales often come in close to the shoreline and can be seen breaching.

Sailing the coast brings you up close to these magnificent creatures alongside schools of dolphins and – even Great White Sharks.
