Hermanus Whale Watching

We love talking holidays and we're here to help. If you'd like our advice on how to create an amazing Hermanus holiday, just give our Destination Specialists a call.

Situated about 80 miles west of Cape Town, Hermanus has been recognised as one of the world’s best land-based whale watching destinations. This spectacular sight can be seen from August to November, when Southern Right whales come here to mate and breed, migrating from the Antarctic around June. 

For some of the best views, take a walk along the coastal cliff path and see Southern Right whales swim within metres of the shore.
