Hermanus Whale Watching
In season we count over 150 whales in our bay. Known as the whale coast.
The Southern right whale visits us from the end of May to the end of November every year. Whales continue to be seen until early January but in far fewer numbers.
Shark Cage Diving
Shark cage diving is done from nearby Kleinbaai and this will get the blood pumping. This will normally cost in the region of about R1000 per day per person and normally lasts 4-6 hours. They will take you again on another trip if no sharks are spotted
Hermanus Sea Kayaking
Kayaking is possible on the sea or lagoons and if you are lucky the dolphins will swim with you. In season you will almost definitely spot whales
Golf in Hermanus
Golf is extremely popular and there are 4 nearby golf courses offering totally different experiences. Please refer our golf page for information on the Hermanus golf course and Arabella golf course.
Hermanus Bird Watching
Birding is very popular around the area. The blue crane is found in numbers on farms close to Hermanus, Stanford and Caledon. The 2 lagoons support a huge number with my favorites i.e. flamingo's , pelican (sometimes) and fish eagle.
Sandboarding near Hermanus
Sun, lots of sand and wind in your hair are all part of a sand boarding experience. You can tackle the big dunes or the small dunes, for how long is up to you. The sand boarding will stop when you have had enough.
