Hermanus Whale explorer



This is an Explorer Tour that takes you all along the Coastline as far as Hermanus or even beyond, ensuring that you get the very best opportunities to view these spectacular Sea Mammals from the shore. Springtime is Whale time!

During the spring months of July, August, September, October and November, the awesome Southern Right and Humpback Whales migrate from the Antarctic regions to the warmer Waters found along our Cape Coastline. Hermanus and surrounds are a nature lovers and Whale watchers paradise.
