What to expect:

The tour will start from your hotel with a beautiful drive to Sir Lowry’s Pass with majestic panoramic views over the low-lying white sandy beaches that stretch back towards Cape Town as you make your way towards Hermanus. Upon your arrival in Hermanus, you will be briefed about the Southern Right Whales. Afterwards you will aboard the whale boat and embark on a 2 to 3 hour sea excursion in the search for the Southern Right Whales. As soon as a whale is spotted, the skipper will stop the boat so that you can see these amazing sea creatures up close. An opportunity for land base viewing is aided by the cliffs edges of Hermanus with walk able paths which serve as an ideal viewing point for the surrounding waters. From Hermanus we drive to Betty’s Bay to view the African Penguins at Stoney Point. The tour proceeds with a drive through Gordon’s Bay with amazing sunset views and beautiful beaches for a scenic drive on Clarence Drive back to Cape Town
