Discover the giants of the South African oceans with a whale watching tour in Hermanus. A pick-up service is provided for you from your accommodation, and the trip starts early in the morning from Cape Town.

On the way to Hermanus, the whale capital of South Africa, we drive towards Gordon’s Bay and then along one of the most beautiful coastal roads of the Western Cape towards Betty’s Bay, where we will visit the Harold Porter Botanical Garden. It offers a wealth of indigenous plants and is a special attraction during all seasons.

Our day trip continues along the picturesque coast towards the Overberg. After about 1.5 hours drive we reach the beautiful coastal town of Hermanus. Here you can experience some amazing whale spotting directly from the rocky landscape on the town’s coast!
