Project Description

Private Hermanus Whale & Wine Tour

On the Private Hermanus Whale and Wine tour we go searching along our coastline to view the Southern Right Whales that frequent our waters each year after their journey from Antarctica. The town of Hermanus has the best land-based whale watching in the world and it is here that we will spend time walking along the cliff paths overlooking Walker Bay, viewing these giants of the Southern Ocean.

Lunch (own account) can either be enjoyed in Hermanus or one of the amazing restaurants in the nearby Hemel en Aarde (Heaven on Earth) valley which we visit to enjoy a tasting of their highly acclaimed cool climate wines and amazing views.

Please Note: We offer this tour year round as the route is still wonderful to experience and the region has so much more to offer such as its fantastic cool climate wines and majestic coastal views.

  • An exciting 2 hour boat-based whale watching cruise (own account and weather dependant)
