Hermanus & Whale Watching Day Tour

Full Day Tour (Seasonal July to November each year during whale season)

One of the top highlight and a must-see Cape Town Day Tour : A scenic discovery of the “Fairest Cape of them all”, including Cape Point, Cape of Good Hope, the Penguin Colony at Boulders Beach, Chapman’s Peak and optional Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens. Experience abundant scenic beauty and sea faring history including:
  • Scenic Sir Lowry’s Pass with its beautiful views
  • Through Elgin and Grabouw, heart of Apple Country
  • Houhoek Pass
  • Hermanus, one of the top holiday villages in South Africa during summertime, are considered to be the “Whale Capital of the world” . Hermanus provides the best land-based whale watching spot in the world and the intelligent graceful Southern Right Whales, as large as 10 elephants, can be seen up to 20 metres from the rocky shores. Hermanus was voted Town of the Year in the Western Cape in 2008 and is also “famous” for
    • being the town that has the world’s only Whale Crier (like a Town Crier)
    • the cliff paths where one can stroll and spot the whales
    • water sport on the tidal lagoon
    • the annual Whale Festival
    • its clean “champagne air”
    • pristine beaches
    • charming village shops and craft
  • Optional Whale-watching Boat trip at Hermanus – the registered boats are allowed up to 50 metres from the whales (but the inquisitive whales sometimes come closer…)
  • A stroll through the Harold Porter Botanical Garden with its indigenous flora
  • Fernkloof Nature Reserve situated in the Kleinriver Mountains above Hermanus with over 1600 different plant species
  • Return to Cape Town via the stunning scenic Clarence Drive, considered one of the top 10 scenic drives in the world. It hugs the coastline and its magnificent sea cliffs on the one side and is snug against the majestic mountain slopes on the other.
