This Cape Whale Route gives you a massive amount of options when it comes to exploring the Western Cape beyond Cape Town. You are also able to customize your own itinerary under the guidance of their knowledgeable Tour Guide/Driver, but there's also a recommended itinerary for you just in case. You will be collected from your accommodation at the agreed time and embark on a journey to the Whale watching capital of South Africa that is Hermanus. Along this private whale watching and Hermanus wine tour, you will drive on the N2 through small towns of Grabouw and Elgin, the apple growing region in South Africa until we reach Hermanus for the boat-based whale watching experience. Here you will spend 2 to 3 hours on the water for an encounter with these majestic creatures. The southernright whales can be encountered as close as 50 meters. These whales which in size each equal up to ten African Elephants, normally approach the boat for a closer look. You will begin the tour with a briefing by a whale specialist site guide whilst we are still on land. We then head off to the boat and set sail towards the whales. Light refreshments will be served on the boat and the site guide will make sure that you take enough photos. You will not only encounter the whales, but will also leave having gained extensive knowledge from the site guide about these large sea creatures. There is also a Translator on board the boat. After the private whale watching tour, you will journey back towards Cape Town, but not before a stop at 2 wine estates namely Newton-Johnson and Hamilton Russell. Creation Wine Estate is highly recommended for a food and wine pairing lunch. Next you will proceed to Stoney Point to see the Penguins colony. This is one of the biggest African penguins colonies. Here you will enjoy taking photos to the penguins. Ever wondered how Penguins survive in South Africa? Well, its because they are African Penguins. After the penguins you will travel back to Cape Town via the scenic Route 44 and see for yourselves what make the African coastline unique from the rest of the world. You will be dropped off at your accommodation at the end of the tour.
