SPECIAL WHALE WATCHING TOURS
Whale watching season in South Africa is between June and October. NOW is the time to plan your Whale Watching Trip.
Some Humpback and Bryde's Whales can be found along our shores throughout the year, but between June and October the large Southern Right Whales come up from the south pole in large numbers to the warmer waters of the South Western Cape to give birth to their calves.
Several areas in the Western Cape are renowned for whale sightings, such as Plettenberg Bay where you can go out on a whale boat to see these mammals which are the length of 10 elephants standing trunk to tail. Hermanus is acknowledged as one of the best landbased whale watching sites in the world and Witsand and De Hoop Nature Reserve also boast excellent whale sightings. Even Fishhoek in Cape Town has its share of annual visiting whales.
Let us design your custom made tour with emphasis on whale watching and we’ll include your other interests such as golf, game viewing or hiking, to make it a tour you've been dreaming about.
