Whale Watching

Hermanus is one of the whale-watching hotspots in the globe. Southern Right Whales and Humpback Whales migrate every year to the warm waters of the Cape, where they put on a spectacular display for the visitors. The best places to see these majestic creatures on foot are from the Cliff Line, the viewing terraces of the Old Harbor and Sievers’ Point. Annually every September a grand whale watching festival is held here that attracts even more wildlife lovers.
