Whale Watching Only, Whale Watching & Kayak

From September to November we offer a full day Whale Watching combo tour to Hermanus, just a 90-minute drive from Cape Town along the spectacular False Bay coast. You will get the chance to admire the biggest and most mysterious mammals in the world.

Cape Town is the only place that offers the best land-based whale watching in the world, so don’t miss this opportunity!

You will have the option to ride with our bicycles along the coastline with the background of the wonderful landscape of Walker Bay on the South Coast of the Western Cape. Hermanus is blessed with an outstanding wine valley called “Hemel-en-Aarde”, which translates to Heaven and Earth, and is named as such due to its magnificent setting. To end off the day, we will enjoy some spectacular wines from the region. Wine tasting is a must-do activity while in this part of the world as it is known for its exceptional quality, small production and cool-climate wines.

Whale Watching Kayak Paddle combo

Kayak trips range from 90 minutes to 3 hours although they normally take about 2 hours. The duration of the trip depends entirely on how far away the whales are. Kayaking is an additional cost of R 800.00 per person with this package.

Southern Right Whales migrate to the coastal waters of South Africa, and within excess of 100 whales are known to migrate to the Hermanus area. These magnificent creatures can range from 15m to 23m in length and weigh between 40 and 100 Tonnes!

If the season is right you may also spot  Cape Fur Seals, Common & Bottlenose Dolphins and the endangered African penguins.

The Southern Right Whales migrate to the coast of Cape Town between the months of June to November/December.
