About this Tour

Springtime in Cape Town is the time for whale watching tour. During spring months, the Southern Right Whale migrates from the Antarctic regions to the Cape Coast’s warm waters. Undeniably, Walker Bay in Hermanus is the ideal place to view these magnificent mammals to calve

Firstly, our tour takes us from Cape Town to Hermanus along the rugged scenic coastal route. Driving through the following places: Gordon’s Bay, Clarence drive, renowned for its breathtaking views and often considered one of the most scenic drives in Cape Town. Followed by Kogel Bay, a stunning stretch of coastline with azure waters and rugged cliffs. Passing through the charming coastal villages of Rooi Els, Pringle Bay, Betty’s Bay before arriving at the Fernkloof nature reserve viewpoint. Located nearby Hermanus, the Fernkloof nature reserve provides an excellent opportunity to spot whales. The afternoon will be spent in Hermanus with a few options. The first option is walking along the Cliff Path, stretching for several kilometers along the rugged coastline. It provides ample opportunities to observe these magnificent creatures up close. Second option is the boat whale watching tour (booking in advance essential)

Our return journey takes us through the apple orchards of Elgin before reaching Sir Lowry’s Pass viewpoint. You’ll be rewarded with stunning panoramic views of the surrounding landscape. On a clear day, you can see across False Bay and might catch glimpses of Cape Point and the familiar sight of Table Mountain in the distance. Cape Escape Tours offer daily excursions to Hermanus.

To summarize a truly unforgettable experience!
