    What to Expect
    Explore the gorgeous coastal scenery and wildlife of South Africa's Cape Whale Route with a private day trip from Cape Town to Hermanus. Enjoy round-trip transportation for you and your family in a luxury vehicle with your own knowledgeable guide/driver. Customize the tour if you like, or use the guide's recommendations.

    Travel to the seaside community of Hermanus, world-famous for its excellent whale watching. Embark on a boat trip to look for Southern Right Whales, which mate and give birth in this area each year. Marvel at the size of these majestic whales, which often come close to the boats and can even be seen from land. Enjoy light refreshments aboard the boat.

    Stop at two wine estates en route back to Cape Town for wine tastings and/or lunch (own expense). Choose the estates you'd like to visit, with Newton-Johnson Family Vineyards and Creation Wines among the options.
