What you could encounter during your trip 


Hermanus is lucky to the host the bulk of the Southern Right Whales that migrate to the South African coastline. In addition the Humpback and Brydes whales can be seen during the Peak season.

The trips are focused on searching and spending time with the whales but your tour can extend in a marine safari with sightings of seals, dolphins and a variety of marine birds including the African penguin.
