Hermarnus Whale Route


The Western Cape town of Hermanus sits on the shores of Walker Bay. From July to December, its rugged cliff-tops offer superb land-based whale watching when southern right whales arrive to mate and calve.The whales often come within 10m of shore and whenever they’re spotted, the town’s Whale Crier blows a kelp horn to alert the public.
Highlights: The scenic Clarens coastal Drive, shore based Whale watching, markets and craft shops in hermanus, farm stalls and view from Sir Lowry’s Pass. (full day)
