  • Enjoy Whale Watchingexpand_more

    Upon our arrival in Hermanus at the New Harbor, you will be briefed about these ocean giants by an experienced qualified whale watching specialist who will tell you about their lives, life span, behaviour, etc. 

    You will then board a modern boat with toilet facilities onboard and embark on a 2 -3-hour sea excursion, searching for the whales in the ocean. As soon as a whale is spotted, the skipper will stop the boat so that everyone can see these amazing sea creatures up close. As time goes by, the skipper and crew members will try to spot more whales to maximize a full whale watching experience. Much of the marine life has been spotted on different Whale watching tours in Hermanus, such as the Humpback whales, killer whales, great white sharks, dolphins, African penguins, Cape fur seals, orcas etc.
