HERMANUS WHALE WATCHING TOUR
The sight of a Southern Right Whale propelling itself out of the water to crash back in a fountain of spray is one that will remain in your memory for a very long time.
Every year between the months of July to November the whales arrive unannounced in the fishing village of Hermanus to calve and rest for a few months before continuing on their journey . Our Tour will leave Stellenbosch and head towards the imposing Hottentots Holland mountains where the view from the top of Sir Lowry’ Pass of False Bay is truly spectacular.
We drive through the fruit growing region of Elgin where we stop at a roadside stall to stock up on some fresh farm products before connecting with the coastline at Hermanus. The view of Walker Bay from Rotary drive is an opportunity to spot our first whales from high up above Hermanus before we move down to the Old Harbor and a walk along the cliff path to spot the ocean’s gentle giants.
A boat trip [ optional ] from New Harbor can be organized and is an opportunity to view the whales up close and personal
After a leisurely lunch at Bientangs Cave which is situated right next to the sea with seafood so fresh it almost jumps into your plate ! we leave the Whale Crier with his Kelp Horn and Hermanus to experience one of the Cape’s most scenic coastal drives back to Gordons Bay. A visit to the Stoney Point Penguin colony is made in Betty’s Bay where we can view the African Penguin in their natural habitat before arriving back in Stellenbosch in time for sundowners!
