What people are saying about Hermanus

We went there at the end of the whale season. On the day of our tour we received a call that our whale watching was canceled due to the bad weather and that we could be rescheduled for the next day. In the morning it should also be more likely to see whales. We then did the 9 o'clock tour the next day and actually saw a mother with a calf and a single whale that came very close to us on the boat. Countless penguins and seals could also be seen. A great, exciting experience!

The trip was wonderful, food and accommodation were excellent. Our guide was Cindy - amazing, funny and positive person. We managed to see everything, impressions will last for a whole year. Thank you.

Very well organized company with a nice big boat. In advance you get free coffee + tea and an introduction to the world of whales. You even get a bottle of water for the trip.

Very good organization, nice crew. Unfortunately, whales weren't as close to the boat as we had hoped, but we were very happy to meet the animals!

It was a super organized tour, great guides and wonderful impressions. You got a lot of information and to see the whales up close.
