Whale watching season

Year by year, from June to November, whale's arrive at Sout Africas coast line. Best place to spot these specie might be the coast of the seaside town Hermanus just one hour drive away from Cape Town.

Whale watching in Hermanus

The charming village is widely regarded as the best land-based whale-watching location in the world. The whales usually stay in the area for a number of months, so visitors will have plenty of time to schedule a trip and witness one of the largest mammals in the world in its natural habitat. There are also a number of walking trails to whale-watch, including land-based and aerial viewing.

Gansbay and the small town of De Kelders, both villages are located on the eastern side of Walkers Bay, are an extra 30 minutes drive away but offer also great views onto the whales.
