THE BOAT TRIP
Hermanus Whale Cruises whale watching trips depart from the New
Harbour in Hermanus.
Eco Cruises cost R450 per adult and R200 for children 12 and under.
Getting to the New Harbour in Hermanus: GPS: 34°26'02"S-19°13'08"E Our physical address is C/O Still Street and Westcliff Road, Hermanus
like passengers to arrive 15 minutes before
departure at our office in the New Harbour for a 10
minute talk on the whales. During the trip you might
see 3 types of whales, dolphins, seals, penguins and
a variety of sea birds.
As a permit holder for Sub-area 3, Hermanus Whale Cruises is permitted to approach whales up to 50 metres. The whales normally turn and approach our boat – often coming as close as 1 metre! We are then allowed to remain in position alongside the whales for up to 20 minutes.
We provide pick-ups and drop-offs (Hermanus only) at no charge.
|Our new whale watching boat seats 87 passengers and takes a crew of 5. There is a top viewing deck that seats 28 passengers, while the front viewing deck seats 10. The Whale Cruiser is wheelchair-friendly!|
Get your own DVD of the trip for R100. It is only a 30 minute waiting period – 15 minutes viewing while it gets recorded and 15 minutes to get your copy!
