This private 10-hour seasonal guided tour for couples, families or small groups traveling together takes you to the town of Hermanus in Walker Bay. Hermanus is known as the "Whale Capital" of South Africa (July to November).

Social distance and utmost flexibility main priorities.

Crowds will be avoided.

The Southern Right Whales migrate to the coastal waters of South Africa and, only a few feet from the shore, provide an unsurpassed whale watching opportunity.

For clients who would like an additional boat whale watching excursion, it is possible but it needs to be indicated when booking is done and it will be for own account. In addition the African Penguin Colony at Stoney Point is visited.

This tour includes a panoramic drive along two stunning mountain passes to Hermanus, as well as along the coast of False Bay, one of the most beautiful drives in South Africa.

Drop off around 18h00.
