Whale Watching Tour in Cape Town (Western Cape, South Africa)

Experience the ocean's 'gentle giants' in their natural habitat just outside of Cape Town!

  • Begin with an on-land briefing presented by our whale specialist guide before heading down the jetty to our catamaran
  • Set off from the Hermanus New Harbour; during the tour, our friendly, knowledgeable crew adds that personal touch to ensure a well-rounded experience (they will make sure you don’t miss the perfect photo opportunity, serve complimentary light refreshments and more)
  • Our permit entitles us to approach the whales up to 50m and then we stop to observe. Whales can be naturally curious and often come right up to the boat
  • An unforgettable, magical experience you will not regret!
