Hermanus is famous for being one of the best land-based whale watching spots in the world. The best time to see these beautiful mammals is between July and November. The Southern Right Whales come as close as 50 metres to the shore and are known to breach, lobtail, spyhop and court in the waters. It's nothing short of amazing!
