The Beauty Of Whale Watching In Hermanus (With Pictures & Videos)

The Beauty Of Whale Watching In Hermanus (With Pictures & Videos)

by Saskia Carelse July 30, 2018

Whale season in South Africa is officially here and you just have to see the stunning photos & videos taken in the whale capital of South Africa - Hermanus!

Something magical happens each year along the coast of South Africa - whales migrate all the way from icy Antarctica to the warmer climates of South Africa roughly during June to November. South Africa is one of the best destinations in the world to view whales, either from boat or from the land. The southern coast of South Africa provides ideal calving conditions, making the bays a hot spot for whales during the whale season. You can witness these majestic beasts frolicking, mating, rearing their young calves along the coasts!

The town of Hermanus in the Western Cape province of South Africa is also known as the whale capital, where people flock during the whale season just to catch a glimpse of these gentle giants, either right up close on a whale watching boat tour or a bit further away from land (either way is unforgettable).

Here are some stunning photos & videos of the whales in Hermanus this whale season:
