Hermanus Whale Watching

It is advisable to pre-book to avoid disappointment as this is an extremely popular activity
Unfortunately all operators could be fully booked a week or more in advance.

Hermanus is the whale watching capital of South Africa and there are few better ways to see these gentle giants in their natural environment than on a boat based whale watching trip.

Each tour / trip is operated from the Hermanus New Harbour and departs 3 to 4 times daily depending on the time of year and weather and sea conditions.

Operators are only entitled by law to approach the whales up to 50m and then stop, allowing the whales to decide whether to approach the boat or not. Being curious they normally approach the boat and enjoy a quick peek at their visitors.

Light Refreshments included (soft drink or still water and packet of crisps)
Duration: Approximately 2 hours
