Are you ready for an unforgettable experience? Hermanus, South Africa, is one of the best places in the world for whale watching. Every year, from early June to late November/early December, Southern Right Whales migrate from their Antarctic feeding areas to the shallow waters of Walker Bay to breed, care for their young, and play.
Visitors to the region can witness these majestic creatures up close and personal. The whales can be seen from the shore, but to get an even closer look, take a boat tour for an unforgettable experience. The town of Hermanus offers a unique and unforgettable experience, perfect for whale watching enthusiasts.
But the excitement doesn't end there! Pencil into your diary the Hermanus Whale Festival taking place between 29 & 30 September - 1 October 2023. This festival celebrates the return of these gentle giants with live music, food stalls, and plenty of activities for the whole family.
