Land Based Whale Watching in Hermanus 

The Southern Right Whale makes their way to the Cape shoreline between July and November annually and they come so close that visitors can watch them from their hotels. Hermanus is one of the world's centers for whale watching and this town has employed a “whale crier” to walk through the town announcing where the whales have been spotted.
