The Whale Route Highlights

The Whale Route also called The Overberg Whale Route is renowned to offer some of the best land based whale watching in the world. It is situated in the Western Cape, along the Cape's southern coastline. Between the months of June through to November each year, these magnificent creatures can be viewed, in some places as close as only a few meters from the shoreline.

Whales, including the Southern Right Whale and the Humpback Whale, are frequently seen along the coastline from Stony point near Betty's Bay, along the cliff paths of Hermanus, (Walker Bay), Kleinmond, Onrus, the De Hoop Nature Reserve and Witsand.
