Hermanus Whale And Wine Tour


Tour Number

Activity Level



Day Trip / Out of Town, Food and Wine, Nature and Wildlife


Kid Friendly: Yes.

Friendly: Yes.
As the best part of the tour is the drive and there is a relatively flat promenade to watch the whales from I believe it is wheel chair friendly. The cave lunch will have to be replaced with a more suitable restaurant.

Maximum travelers: 7

Where heaven meets earth!

This tour takes us through some of the Capes most breathtaking valleys and coastal road. Simply enjoy the beautiful scenery and award winning wines and combine it with land based whale watching or a cruise around Walker Bay to get up close to the majestic creatures.


After your pick up we will head towards the beautiful Hottentots-Hollands Mountains where depending on the plans for the day (whether we do the whale watching boat) we will either cross over the mountains or follow the the coastal route with a quick stop at the shark spotters station. whilst we are in Hermanus we can enjoy the whales playing in the bay, have lunch in a cave that was home to ancient tribes and enjoy great wine in the Heaven and Earth Wine Valley.

Meeting Location + Tour Duration

Meeting location: We can arrange a pick up at your hotel, cruise ship terminal or a local landmark.

A Recent Review of this tour

It was a cold and windy day when we joined Iggy for a trip to Hermanus. Knowing that the whales would likely elude us, we still wanted to drive the coast road for its beautiful scenery. It was our fourth day touring with Iggy, so he felt like an old friend. During many hours together, he learned a bit about us, and we enjoyed his passion for his toddler son, his country, the Springboks in particular, and sports in general. I hope he'll still be guiding when I manage another trip to Cape Town.
