Every year between June and December whales flock to the Hermanus shores to give birth or find a mate, earning the town a repuation as the whale-watching capital of the world. Here you can often see magnificent Southern Right Whales, Humpback Whales and Bryde’s Whales breaching out of the ocean. Visit the Whale Museum in town or book a guided walk along the famous Hermanus Cliff Path. Here an experienced guide will take you to view the hidden coves and inlets where the whales love to frolic. Alternatively, boat-based whale-watching trips allow you to watch these beautiful marine creatures up close in their natural environment.
