Wow! What a fantastic experience!!! Whale Watchers must be complimented on their friendliness, professionalism, level of personal attention and care given to each tourist. We had a really great experience on our trip to sight those beautiful big mammals up close and learn more about the coastline and sea creatures.
Thank you guys!

Having only two days in Hermanus, we asked the tourist information who to go whale watching with. They suggested The Whale Watchers, so we booked for the family (four adults) for the 3.00pm trip the next day. We arrived at the quay in plenty of time, having first checked in at the office and paid. We were informed that they were running late, but should go out at 3.15pm. There were two or three other whale watching boats at the quay which left at 3.00pm. At 3.15 the boat we were going on came back and the skipper informed us that they would not be going out again that day. The excuse given was that the sea was too rough. We strongly believe that it was because there only four of us booked on the trip. We would have preferred the truth and an opportunity to have chosen one of the alternative boats had they told us before the others left!!!!! The office had plenty of opportunity to inform us beforehand. As we were leaving the following morning we were unable to go whale watching.

The Whale Watchers boat trip was a great experience. The crew was extremely knowledgable and friendly. They knew exactly where to find the whales and we got very close to 4 different mother and baby pairs. We learned a lot about whale behavior and the guides were willing to answer any and all questions. It was nice to be in a small group as it felt more personal than some of the bigger boats with 80 people on them. Whale watching is a must while in Hermanus!
