Hermanus: Boat Based Whale Watching Experience

1. Hermanus: Boat Based Whale Watching Experience

Board your vessel for the day and receive a safety briefing before starting your whale watching adventure. In good weather conditions travellers will be allowed on the top-deck before departure for great unobstructed views, otherwise they will be allowed on top only after the whales have been found. Travel out onto the ocean taking in great views as you go.  Once the whales have been spotted, the vessel is allowed to move closer to the whales where it stops and the engines disengage is to prevent the whales from being injured by the propellers. Experience for yourself the astonishment of being so close to these majestic creatures.  As the whales are curious creatures, they might move up to the vessel for some 'people watching'. See a variety of other marine wildife such as dolphins and seals as you coast along the water. As you travel through the day and spot these beautiful creatures learn more about them from your crew, before they take you back to land after a once in a lifetime experience.

The guide was very friendly, funny and accommodating. We always felt safe and were able to fully enjoy the tour. They know exactly where the whales are and tell exciting stories about the animal. Thanks to a bit of luck we saw dolphins and a sea lion. We would book the tour again in a heartbeat.

Absolutely amazing!! We were hoping to see a whale, we saw many! This is a trip that we will definitely not forget, the tour guide & crew were all very friendly and knowledgeable and the boat comfy! But above all, we saw lots of Whales!!! Thank you

Whales to pet! We were lucky enough to see three whales, some of which came straight to the boat and swam around. The information before and during the trip was very interesting and the crew was very friendly! A perfect trip!

Top Crew, very professional tour. Saw lots of whales. Great experience!
