Whales & Vineyard Safari (August-April)
Situated along the shores of Walker Bay, Hermanus is the official whale watching capital of the world during the months of July to December. Sixty to 100 whales visit the shores of Hermanus from Antarctica to breed and rear young, coming as close as 10m of the coast. Unspoiled mountains and indigenous Fynbos make for a picturesque backdrop for Southern Right whale watching.
