Whale-watching in Hermanus

We left a cloudy Cape Town and then spent the afternoon watching whales in sunny Hermanus. The ‘whale-capital’ of South Africa has a beautiful coastal path, and from there we spotted a number of southern-right whales and orcas.

We have had many superb meals over the years in South Africa, but none finer than tonight’s at Hermanos. As close to perfection as you can get, and at a very reasonable price.

  1. Great post on whale watching. My favorite time of year. When traveling and selecting a whale watching tour company, I always try to pick one that states they are responsible in how they approach whales. Being as close to a whale may be fun for us, but not necessarily to the whales according to research.

    I just took a whale watching tour in Costa Rica and liked the professionalism this operator demonstrated. This page on their website explains how they approach whales and why.
