A Great Whale Watching and Winery Experience in Cape Town, South Africa
Nov 2018
We sailed into the far side of the bay in Hermanus - a small town on the Cape Town coast. The boat captain was very experienced and the boat was full of "eagle-eyed" customers yelling out when a whales became visible. We all chipped in, even though we didn't know each other well, and everyone shared the deck so that vantage points for pictures could be obtained for all. Drinks and snack food were provided on board for those that needed them. Wear layered clothing and bring sunscreen - even though it may be hot on land - it was actually chilly and bright on the water.

We observed Southern Right Whales - cows and calves. Some of the whales "bumped" our boat, dove for food and were seen practicing "mating" manuevers (females rolling on their backs). There were at least six (6) different whale pods observed during our almost 2.5 hours on the water. The captain manuevered the boat exceptionally well - getting close to the whales without "spooking" them.

The winery tour will be covered under a seperate review - although I can tell you that our first winery was a "letdown" and our second winery was much, much better!!

There was a lunch stop at a restaurant in Hermanus which was OUTSTANDING. This will also be covered in a seperate review.

Would I recommend this trip to everyone? The answer is a resounding "YES"....

WHALE WATCHING GOOD, GUIDE NOT SO GOOD
Oct 2018 • Couples
The whale watching part of our tour was good and we saw plenty of whales as advertised. Our driver, Joseph was a nice guy and a good driver but did not add anything else to the experience. Also, he skipped the wine tasting stop.
