Whale Watching in Hermanus

A Whale Watching Wonderland Awaits!

Ready to have a whale of a time on a spectacular whale watching adventure? Join us on a scenic journey from the Glorious Cape, all the way to the charming coastal village of Hermanus. Hermanus is world-renowned for its incredible whale watching opportunities!

Sit back, get comfortable, and immerse yourself in the spectacular coastal scenery as we travel to the picturesque town of Hermanus. With the tranquil ocean on one side and the majestic mountains on the other, you’re in for a truly mesmerizing experience. Feel the anticipation as you approach this extraordinary place, knowing that magnificent whales await your arrival!

Witness Nature’s Giants!

Hermanus is situated along the migration route of Southern Right whales. Every year, from June to November, these majestic creatures travel from the frigid waters of Antarctica to the warmer waters of Hermanus Bay for mating and to raise their young. It’s an unforgettable experience to see these gentle giants breaching, playing, and giving birth in the bay. It’s not surprising the World Wildlife Fund has acknowledged Hermanus as one of the top 12 whale-watching destinations in the world!

Glorious Cape Tours is known for its commitment to excellence and only uses the best guides for every excursion. These experienced guides are well-versed in the behaviour and habitats of the Southern Right whales. Guests can rest assured that they are in the hands of knowledgeable and passionate guides dedicated to providing a safe, informative, and remarkable whale watching experience in Hermanus.

As you stand on the coastline of Hermanus scanning the horizon for majestic whales, don’t be surprised if you also catch sight of playful Cape Fur Seals basking on the sun-kissed rocks. You may spot African Penguins waddling along the picturesque shoreline. Make sure to keep your camera ready to capture these incredible moments!

This excursion will leave you “whale-ing” with excitement, all the way home!
