Full Day Whale Watching in Hermanus

Hermanus

Activity Description

Whale Route Full Day
Whale-watching tours offer an exciting way to witness the majestic Southern Right whales that come to the Cape each season to breed and calve. Whale season typically runs between June and November in the Cape, and each season, large numbers of whales can be seen along the coast.
The drive along Sir Lowry’s Pass through the sleepy coastal towns of the Whale Route offer spectacular views of the Cape coastline, and in your comfortable, air-conditioned vehicle you will be able to relax and enjoy the sights on this memorable Cape whale-watching tour.

Hermanus
As one of the top destinations for whale-watching, Hermanus is perfectly positioned to offer the best viewing directly from the shore. You will be able to watch as these giants of the deep frolic in the waves, and launch out of the water to breach.
Hermanus is the only town in the world that has a ‘whale crier’ officially on duty during the whaling season and this is a popular attraction on whale watching tours in this town. Stationed at a prime vantage point, the crier is able to spot whales and then sound his horn to let bystanders know that there are whales in the bay.The town was once a prime whaling station, and with its sheltered bay that draws the whales to this area each year, Hermanus was one of the more lucrative whaling stations in South Africa. The Old Harbour Museum has a number of relics left over from this era.
