Dyer Island Cruises operates whale watching between July and December from Gansbaai, near Hermanus and they guarantee Southern Right whale sightings!
Their whale watching trips are considered not just magical but rewarding too, and are sure to capture everyone's imagination.
South Africa is one of the best destinations worldwide for watching marine mammals, whether from land or from boats, with spectacular annual visits from Southern Right and Humpback whales and enormous pods of dolphins year-round. Every year, Southern Right whales migrate from their icy feeding grounds off Antarctica to warmer climates, reaching South Africa in June. The country's coastal waters teem with the giant animals, mating, calving and rearing their young - and giving whale-watchers spectacular displays of raw power and elegant water acrobatics.
