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 best place to see these creatures is along the famous Whale Route. Which spans along the coastline passing Gordon’s Bay, Pringle Bay and Betty’s Bay en route to Hermanus. Spot the mighty whale in all its entirety and see why men of all ages are in awe of its statue as one of the greatest creatures roaming in the big blue ocean.
First of all, Hermanus is home to exceptional biodiversity. And so much so that the region has been listed as one of the world’s 12 best whale watching sites. Also the town of Hermanus has its own whale crier, which looks for areas where they are located and increases the chances of visitors to admire them closely. And even more than whale watching in Hermanus, the village is a pleasant city to live in, a pretty seaside resort where you can relax on dream beaches between two excursions.
Furthermore, while the raw power and elegant aquatic acrobatics of right whales are usually the highlight of the show, you can also spot humpback whales, Minke whales, Bryde’s whales and even killer whales. And a qualified guide will help you differentiate them.
In conclusion, come and admire these marine mammals in an idyllic setting like you’ve never seen them before!
