Whale Watching Holidays

Whale Watching in South Africa

Whale watching in South Africa offers unrivalled viewing of one of the earth’s largest mammal, the Southern Right whale. Returning to mate every year between July and December, it’s something not to be missed. They can easily be viewed from the shoreline as you gently dip your toes in the ocean, but for something spectacular - hop on board a boat from Cape Town, Hermanus or Gansbaai, for close up views as these majestic creatures come up for air. Other fascinating attractions include Great White sharks, turtles and dolphins.
