          The Southern Right Whales come to the shores of the Cape Whale Coast from June till November each year to mate and calve in the shallow waters. There are also visiting Brydes all year round, and Humpback whales passing between June till November on their way to the warmer Mozambican waters.

          The region has gained the reputation of offering the best land-based whale watching in the world because of the excellent viewpoints provided by the cliff path along Walker Bay. Kleinmond, Hermanus, De Kelders and Gansbaai also have fantastic land-based lookout points but in whale season you’ll even be able to spot whales while lying on the beach or eating breakfast on your coastal patio. There are many options available when visitors want to get a glimpse of the whales. A walk along the cliff path is one. Hermanus has the world’s one and only Whale Caller, who blows his kelp horn to announce whale sightings.

          Boats go out from Hermanus, Kleinbaai and Gansbaai to give travellers an adventure on sea. The weather and tides play a role in the scheduling of trips and times should be checked with the operators. There are three permitted whale watching boats that leave Hermanus New Harbour for daily trips weather permitting. Please confirm prices with operators.

          No two trips are alike. Visitors are encouraged to attempt as many whale watching experiences as possible and observe the whales from land, boat or the sky.

          Adventure seekers can also kayak with the whales. Book with www.walkerbayadventures.co.za

          Prices vary according to group sizes, and you should please confirm prices with the service providers.
