When visiting the Westcape area in October, whale watching is a must-do! There are only a few companies with licences for whale watching tours in the Hermanus area and since Ivanhoe came highly recommended by our hotel hostess we decided to drive slightly further out to Gansbaai and join their late morning trip. Like most other reviewers, we got an almost private tour with very few other people on board. The staff are friendly and knowledgeable and respectful towards the animals. We encountered a fur seal, some penguins and quite a few whales with calves. The staff always kept the boat at a nice distance, close enough to take some great photos yet far enough not to disturb these magnificent mammals. Great little company!
