Visit both the Stony Point Nature Reserve—home to a large colony of African penguins—and the Waaygat Whaling Station on this tour from Cape Town. See the black and white birds up close from a boardwalk through the colony, learning about their biology and behavior through a guide's commentary. Tour the remnants of the Waaygat Whaling Station, the former site of whale meat harvesting and processing from the early 20th century, to imagine what whaling life was like on the cape during that time. Light lunch included.
  • Combine visits to a penguin colony and a defunct whaling station on a single tour
  • Stroll the boardwalk through an African penguin colony, observing their daily life without disturbing them
  • Learn about the whaling industry in South African through a tour of the defunct whale meat processing plant

I was disappointed because the whaling season is past and although I did see penguins I had to book a separate taxi for myself to come back and see the other attractions in the area such as Cheetah Experience and the Stellenbosch wineries could have all been combined into one tour. furthermore the driver insisted on me paying another 500 Rand because I was a single passenger despite you having accepted my booking! and his car was not the best quality in terms of air conditioning Etc so I feel I did NOT get value for money on this tour
