Additional Location Information
Hermanus is situated in the heart of the Whale Route, just 100km from Cape Town on the Cape Whale Coast. It has developed from a rustic fishing village into one of the world’s best whale-viewing sites.
The majestic Southern Right whales frequent our coastline from June to November and can be viewed via land, sea or air. The world's only Whale Crier patrols the cliff paths signaling whale locations using a kelp horn. To hear the whales blow and see the v-shaped vapour expelled from their blow holes, is like hearing the breath of life. Read our whale watching tips to learn what to look out for.
