#WalkerBay is yet again filled with #whales! Our annual visitors – the gentle giants of the ocean. The Southern right whales are some of the most precious whales to observe as their curious nature brings them ever closer to the shore and to boats to investigate and greet whoever is onboard. If you would like to witness the magical display of the whales, take advantage of Grootbos' Wonderful Winter Warmer Special that is running until the end of July - http://goo.gl/Zk0SvZ
Official #whale season kicks off in June every year, when hundreds of Southern Right Whales congregate in the waters of Walker Bay to mate - and to calve their young. A few whales have been spotted in the #Hermanus, De Kelders and Gansbaai waters - we'll keep updating you as to their presence in the bay!
