What to expect

Witness the majestic Southern Right whales that come to the Cape each season to breed and calve. 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.

1. Fernkloof Nature Reserve & Harold Porter Botanical Gardens

Enjoy a visit to the beautiful Fernkloof Nature Reserve, which spans 2000 hectares of mountains and coastal fynbos as well as a huge number of birds and smaller mammals. The Harold Porter Botanical Gardens is another highlight for nature-lovers, while on weekdays and Saturdays, a trip through the Hamilton Russell Wine Estate offers a glimpse into Hermanus’ viticulture. (1h)

2. Hermanus

As one of the top destinations for whale-watching, Hermanus is perfectly positioned to offer the best viewing directly from the shore. You will be able to watch as these giants of the deep frolic in the waves and launch out of the water to breach.

Hermanus is the only town in the world that has a ‘whale crier’ officially on duty during the whaling season and this is a popular attraction on whale watching tours in this town. Stationed at a prime vantage point, the crier is able to spot whales and then sound his horn to let bystanders know that there are whales in the bay.
(1h 30min)

3. Whale Watching - The Southern Right Whale

An interesting trait that is unique to the Southern Right Whale is 'sailing' – the whales use their elevated flukes to catch the wind. This behaviour is thought to be a form of play and is commonly seen off the coast South Africa.
