can you let me know about the whale watching tour on this holiday?
have there been sightings and what is the best time of year to see them.
I really want to see whales and would like to know if this is a good whale watching trip on this holiday?

Hi Diane,

With regards to the best time for whale watching (and other animal encounters) on our South Africa tour this was covered in a recent thread st by Joy that you can find via this link (viewtopic.php?f=3&t=839).

During the season our groups do regularly sea whales when we stop at Hermanus, though please be aware that this is not a boat excursion but viewing from the coast (however the whales do come surprisingly close to shore). I you really want to it is also possible to join whale watching excursions from Cape Town during your free time there.

I hope that helps,
