Every year between the months of July to November the whales arrive unannounced in the fishing village of  Hermanus to calve and rest for a few months before continuing on their journey . Our Tour will leave Stellenbosch and head towards the imposing Hottentots Holland mountains where the view from the top of Sir Lowry’ Pass of False Bay is truly spectacular.

Our Tour will leave Stellenbosch and head towards the imposing Hottentots Holland mountains where the view from the top of Sir Lowry’s Pass of False Bay is truly spectacular.

We drive through the fruit-growing region of Elgin where we stop at a roadside farm stall to stock up on some fresh farm products before connecting with the coastline at Hermanus. The view of Walker Bay from Rotary drive is an opportunity to spot our first whales from high up above Hermanus before we move down to the Old Harbor and a walk along the cliff path to spot the ocean’s gentle giants.

A boat trip [ optional ] from New Harbor can be organized and  is an opportunity to view the whales up close and personal

Lunch will be at  Bientangs Cave (an experience that will long live in your memory ! )

The cave carved into a cliff face has a great history and was once home to the "Strandloper" clans, here you sit on the deck close enough to see whales lounging in the water a mere 100 meters away whilst enjoying some great seafood and Cape Wines!

After lunch we leave the Whale Crier with his Kelp Horn and Hermanus to experience one of the Cape’s most scenic coastal drives back to Gordons Bay.

A visit to the Stoney Point Penguin colony is made in Betty’s Bay where we can view the African Penguins in their natural habitat before arriving back in Cape Town late afternoon
