Whale Watching - Hermanus

The East Coast of South Africa is home to popular beaches and bays and scenic mountain passes - but also home to the Southern Right Whale for a good part of the year.

From Cape Town, travel to Hermanus and take a motor boat or kayak out to meet the whales as they travel along their migration route or just stand on the beach and watch - they often come right up to the shore!

Walker Bay in Hermanus is said to have the worlds best land-based whale watching.

The whales can be spotted between June and November but the best time is around August/September.
