Join us as we venture on a day of whale watching in Hermanus from Cape Town in South Africa! Sail past white sandy beaches, see spectacular vistas of the cliffs of De Kelders and have close encounters with southern right whales on this 1-day trip.

A seaside town southeast of Cape Town, Hermanus is a popular whale-watching destination in South Africa. The trip begins from the capital city of Cape Town and takes us on a journey like no other! 

We will set on a boat and launch from the beautiful harbor of Gansbaai, sailing past the cliffs of De Kelders. From here, we will head towards an area with a high concentration of whales, on the South African Coastline. Learn about the fun facts and feeding styles of these giant sea mammals as we sail.

Once we reach, you will be delighted to see these enormous creatures rollicking in water. You might as well spot playful dolphins, Cape fur seals, and other marine animals. Be attentive for Bryde’s whales jumping in the sea!

Besides whales, it is not uncommon to catch a glimpse of the adorable African penguins and the beautiful orcas. It will be fun spotting so many marine animals on this one trip!

After relishing our time in the sea, we will head back to the harbor, ending this incredible adventure in the evening.

Don’t wait further. Book now to set on this amazing Cape Town whale watching tour to see these gigantic sea animals frolicking in their natural habitat. Looking for some more adventure in South Africa? We also guide this kayak trip to the penguin colony at Boulders Beach.
