Whale Tour

We leave Cape Town around 09h00 and head due east towards the peaceful villages of Somerset West and Strand. We then drive through the seaside village of Gordon's Bay where we have our first opportunity of perhaps spotting whales from a scenic vantage point overlooking False Bay. Our journey then continues along the gorgeous coastline to Kleinmond and ultimately Hermanus, where one has the opportunity of either doing a wine tasting at one of the beautiful local wineries or taking a boat trip out to view the whales up close and personal (optional extra). The 'Southern Right' Whales congregate in large numbers in Hermanus (Walker Bay) during our winter months to calve and mate and whale watching from the cliffs in the village itself is then considered by many to be the best in the world. Enjoy a hearty lunch at one of the many wonderful restaurants in the village whilst watching the whales frolic and cavort in the calm waters of the bay. After lunch we visit some 'secret' whale haunts before returning to Cape Town via the scenic fruit growing areas of Elgin and Grabouw and Sir Lowry's Pass.
