In Brief:

The Southern Right Whales migrate to the coastal waters of South Africa to calve and nurse their young. These mammals, metres from the shore, provide an unsurpassed whale watching opportunity. Walker Bay, with Hermanus as the major town (Our Whale Capital), is known as the best place for whale  watching. This full day tour includes a panoramic drive along two stunning mountain passes as well as along the coast of False bay, one of the most beautiful drives in South Africa. On the way back a Penguin Colony is visited.

Itinerary:

Pick up at 09h00 (or earlier depending on the tour option) and drive via the N2 towards the towns of Somerset West and Gordon’s Bay. The awesome Sir Lowry’s Pass takes us through one of our major apple growing areas where after the Houwhoek Pass leads us to the “Overberg” where we could spot our National Bird, the Blue Crane. From top of the mountain the beautiful Canola and wheat fields will be visible.

We pass the fishing village of Hawston before we enter Hermanus. An orientation tour is done to point out the best spots for rock whale watching. Should you prefer whale watching by boat we proceed to the harbour or should you choose to do it by air we carry on to Stanford to the airstrip.

After lunchtime we return and take on the beautiful coastal drive. We stop in Betty’s Bay and Stoney Point for a walk to the breeding place of the African Penguin (also called the Jack-Ass Penguin). Clarence Drive follows next as we pass the holiday towns of Pringle Bay and Rooi-Els. Drop off in Cape Town around 17h00/17h30.
