Experience a close encounter with the gentle giants of the ocean by joining us on an informative and educational whale watching trip.
Southern Right Charters offers boat-based whale watching tours from the New Harbour in Hermanus, the Capital of the Cape Whale Coast, and operates within the local waters of Walker Bay, regarded as one of the best whale watching areas in the world.
The company is progressive and environmentally sensitive and as a licensed permit holder operates under our motto of: Observing NOT Disturbing , the safety and conservation of the whales and marine life is principal. Under this ethos the company believes it is its obligation to ensure the service offered is informative and educational.
Safety is a priority during all whale watching Hermanus tours and the company ensures that the experience is safe and conducted in a professional and responsible manner at all times. Our permit entitles us to approach the whales up to 50m and then we stop to observe. Being naturally curious, the whales normally approach the boat to observe us! This is an inspirational experience to be treasured.
During the tour our friendly crew is on hand to make sure you have a great experience, from helping you get the perfect photo opportunity to serving your complimentary light refreshments. Our Whale Specialist guide will interpret the marine life encountered en route and provide insight into the behaviour of the whales while you are watching them in action, and our videographer will ensure that the best footage is captured.
