Sightseeing Whale Watching Hermanus Full Day Tour CET 10

Springtime on the Cape Coast is whale time! During the spring months the Southern Right Whale migrates from the Antarctic regions to the warm waters around the Cape Coast. Walker Bay in Hermanus is the ideal place to view these magnificent mammals to calve. The ‘whale crier’ proclaims the arrival of the whale by way of a seaweed horn. Our Tour take us from Cape Town via Gordon’s Bay along the rugged scenic coastal route which offers spectacular views of the Cape Peninsula across False Bay. On the way we will drive up to the Fernkloof Nature Reserve overlooking Walkers Bay before heading to Hermanus and a visit to the whale museum. Late afternoon our route back to Cape Town will take us through the apple orchards and forests of Elgin via Sir Lowry’s Pass and the familiar sight of Table Mountain leading the way. Cape Escape Tours offer daily excursion to Hermanus. This picturesque day tour takes you over the mountains to Hermanus some of the greatest land based opportunities for whale watching in the world (August – November).
