Whale Watching

Kennedys Beach Villa afilliated with Southern Right Charters

Hermanus has been acknowledged by the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) as one of the twelve best whale viewing sites in the world. Considering that whales can be seen a few metres from the rocky cliffs, Hermanus deserves its title of the best land based whale watching spot in the world.

You will see them along the 12 km-long cliff path, stetching from one end of Hermanus to the other, providing some of the best whale watching vantage points in the world. Whales can be viewed frolicking as close as five metres from shore. An hour-long walk along the cliff path is sure to be rewarding.

The world's only whale crier, Eric Davalala, is found here in Hermanus, where he patrols the shores of the town blowing his kelp horn and alerting everyone to the whereabouts of the whales.

Besides land based whale watching you can also observe whales from boat based legal operators who hold permits issued by Sea Fisheries.

Or you can take to the skies with African Wings and watch the giants of the deep from the air. The record number of sightings stands at 135 whales during a thirty minute flight in Walker Bay.
