Full description
This circular tour takes you over a mountain pass to the seaside town of Hermanus. This town, nestled between mountains and the sea is not only very beautiful but offers some of the best shore based whale watching opportunities in the world (August – November). Close sightings of the Southern Right whale are likely.

On the return journey we follow the coastline with the possibility of further sightings of whales (and even the possibility of sighting dolphins).

A stop is made at Stoney Point, near Betty’s Bay to have a look at the penguins (optional, for own account & time permitting) before returning to Cape Town in the afternoon.
