The city is internationally known as the home of the Southern Right Whale, which can easily be observed from June to December. The peak viewing times for these amazing giants of the sea is August – November. The whales begin to migrate from Antarctica in late April, taking up to approximately 8 weeks to arrive in Walker Bay, Hermanus. The beginning of the season is characterized by whale mating groups, where males ‘compete’ for the attention of available females in large active groups. Males generally leave the South African waters by September, leaving only the mothers and calves for the rest of the season. Whale calves become extremely playful and agile as the season ends, practicing the swimming and communication skills they need for the 3,000km journey south to the Antarctic waters. Every year, an aerial whale count is conducted during October, and the amount of mothers and calves in our area can easily top +100 individuals at the height of the season.
Hermanus has been acknowledged by the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) as one of the twelve best whale viewing locations in the world. The world’s only Whale Crier has become a legend and is the most photographed icon in South Africa next to Nelson Mandela. What makes the whale watching in Hermanus so phenomenal is the fact that the whales can be seen from as close as a few meters from the beach, shore or rocky cliffs.
