2.5 hours out of Cape Town is Gansbaii , where the best whale watching in Africa can be found. Southern right whales congregate in Walker Bay to calve and start to raise their young.
Do yourself a favour , take a 20 minute drive further on from the tourist hotspot of Hermanus and the commercial boats out of there and instead pick Ivanhoe , from the first moment you meet them you can see they obviously care about the whales that are the foundation of the business and the trip reinforced this in spades. Slow approaches, consideration for the well being of the whales, professional and helpful to all their guests. No shortage of whales were spotted ( it was in excess of 20 ) and we were able to get close enough for good pictures without disturbing them in their natural environment.
Brilliant experience. Totally recommended.
