Enjoy a scenic drive with visits to local coastal towns and Hermanus to view the majestic Southern Right Whales. Hermanus has been recognized by the WWF (World Wildlife Fund) as one of the 12 best whale watching destinations in the world. Walker Bay, is the mating and breeding grounds of the Southern Right Whale during the winter and spring months (from June to November). Southern Right Whales migrate from the Antarctic around June to calve and mate. Calving takes place in August and September and the males arrive for mating in October when the whale population peaks.

It is always good to check out your budget and consider doing some private touring as well as some scheduled touring options. Our advice is to spoil yourself with a private tour and if the budget is restricted, then mix in a scheduled tour. The routes are the same for a schedule tour versus a private tour. The difference is that on a private tour you can stop for longer where you chose to and stop for a long leisurely lunch……which is of course a priority when you are on holiday. A private tour will done in a luxury vehicle and will be just yourself where a scheduled tour with up to 12 other people in a shuttle.
