Whales can be seen around our shores from late June to mid November.

These perennial visitors can be easily spotted from the shore as well as boat-based whale-watching. Of the estimated 7000 Southern Right Whales in the southern hemisphere, approximately 2000 make the journey to the South African coast each year. These large numbers contribute to making South Africa a premier whale-watching destination. Hermanus, in the Cape Overberg, is the best spot for viewing these giant mammals.
