Experience the ultimate marine adventure. A close encounter with gentle giants. Join us on a informative & fun whale watching trip in Hermanus. While no two trips are ever the same, from years of experience, we have come to expect sighting of not only Southern Right Whales, but sharks, dolphins, seals and the african penguin also. While we cannot guarantee sightings of a particular species, our understanding of what species are found in our Bay at certain times of the year, gives us a good idea of the chance of seeing these. Remember, this is only a guideline founded on our experience and these animals are being observed in their natural surroundings so no guarantees can be given of sightings of on any species.

Hermanus has been recognized by the WWF (World Wildlife Fund) as one of the 12 best whale watching destinations in the world. The best time to enjoy whale watching in Hermanus is between July and November either from the beach, the famous cliff path, by boat or from the air via a scenic flight. Hermanus, particularly Walker Bay, is the mating and breeding grounds of the Southern Right Whale during the winter and spring months (from June to November). Southern Right Whales migrate from the Antarctic around June to calve and mate. Calving takes place in August and September and the males arrive for mating in October when the whale population peaks.
