Whales and Wine Tour (scheduled tour to Hermanus)

Safari Enquiry

Combine whale watching in the little town of Hermanus in Walker Bay with wine tasting in the green and beautiful Hemel en Aarde Valley.

Marvel at the scenery on Clarens Drive, a coastal road that gives spectacular views of False Bay. When you arrive in the holiday town of Hermanus, dubbed the whale-watching capital of South Africa, you’ll search for whales from the cliffs. This tour operates only during whale season from July to November. There’s no guarantee you’ll see whales, but your guide will make every effort to find the best viewing point. There may be an opportunity to join boat-based whale watching (for your own account and subject to availability and weather).

Then you’ll go to the Hemel en Aarde (Heaven and Earth) Valley for a wine tasting at Bouchard Finlayson wine estate. The estate is closed on Sundays, but a visit to the cheetah sanctuary will be included instead, if time permits.

Relax with a cup of tea (for your own account) at a farm stall where you can find natural preserves, jams with a difference, and delicious pastries. Then return to Cape Town over Sir Lowry’s Pass and enjoy the views of long white sandy beaches stretching along the False Bay coastline. On a clear day you can see Cape Point.
