Kayaking With Whales in Hermanus

As whales disappear from the oceans at alarming rates, getting close to them is increasingly difficult. Hermanus is so good because you can easily witness whales from both the shore and water.

Southern right whales migrate to the area from July to November, mothers coming to calf, males to mate. Males are so big their testicles weigh half a ton. Humpbacks also breach here and the action is particularly spectacular on a private kayaking excursion.

Expect thrilling moments and a real appreciation of size.
