Sightseeing Safaris & Tours in Western Cape

Full Day Whale Route Tours

Witness the majestic Southern Right whales arriving at the Cape each season to breed and calve in Gordon's Bay, Pringle Bay, Betty's Bay & Hermanus, the most best place to watch whales.

Whale Season runs between June - November

On the Whale Watching tour tourists and local holiday-makers will also visit the Fernkloof Nature Reserve, home to a large number of birds and small mammals, and Harold Porter Botanical Gardens. On weekdays and Saturdays, a trip to Hamilton Russel Wine Estate offers a glimps into Hermanus' viticulture.

We drive along Sir Lowry's pass, with an amazing view, through coastal towns that make up the Whale Route. Upon reaching Hermanus, we embark at a vantage point for the best view of the Whales.

During Whale season the official 'whale crier' of Hermanus stands on duty to signal visitors when the whales are nearby.
