Probably the most amazing activity is taking advantage of the wonderous Walker Bay, The property offers marine safari’s in conjunction with whale watching and shark cage diving. The area known for its amazing whale watching season from June and November when Southern Right Whale migrates from the icy Antarctic waters to the warmer coastal waters of South Africa and they make this protected bay their home to calve and mate.
In the peak months of September, October and November there are a multitude of ways to view these incredible animals in Walker Bay: We work closely with operators in the area to offer anything from an adrenaline fueled guided sea kayak adventure, to luxury boat charters, to helicopter flips as well as various strategic points along the coastline.
Most of the whales present in the ocean off Hermanus are giant 80 ton Southern Right Whales, however there are also Humpback whales and Bryde’s whales.
This is a stunning activity and once in a lifetime event, which can be added to any incentive group or as a post group add on. Please contact us should you have any queries or would like further information.
