Embarquez pour une excursion privée d'observation des baleines incluant le transfert depuis l'hôtel depuis n'importe où dans Le Cap et rendez-vous dans la ville d'Hermanus, l'un des meilleurs endroits en Afrique du Sud pour admirer les majestueuses baleines franches australes entre juin et la mi-décembre. L'excursion privée au départ du Cap le long de la côte sur la Route des baleines du Cap est une expérience sereine, avec de magnifiques vues sur l'Océan Atlantique et les montagnes.
We did this tour for my birthday while we were staying in Cape Town. We were picked up from our hotel and taken out along a beautiful coast line to Hermanus. On route we visited Stoney Point which is a quieter colony of the African Penguins. There were so many to see and you get really close to them as you walk along the wooden paths. It is respectfully done and not intrusive on the Penguins.We were then taken to a wine tasting vineyard which was in a beautiful setting and location. We enjoyed sampling a few wines but didn't drink too much as we were yet to venture out onto the boat for the Whale Watching.The Whale Watching its self is magical. We sat at the front of the boat and got thoroughly soaked from the waves splashing up which in itself was great fun and we were all laughing.Once you reach the area of the Whales you don't know where to look first as there are so many. There is a guide on the boat who explains everything and points out all the different places to look to get views. We dried off in no time as well as the sun was certainly shining on us. The boat company also use a drone so they can filmy you on the boat and get some great shots of the Whales from above. It was totally magical and the experience was truly a special one. The boat was a good size and felt very comfortable and drinks and snacks were provided.When we arrived back our driver took us to a local area for lunch and we got to watch Whales breaching right outside our restaurant. The lunch is not included but the food was lovely and well worth doing after a busy few hours. Plus the stop with local shops and the Whales was an added bonus.The whole day was brilliant. Our guide was knowledgeable and told us lots about the local area and had a real enthusiasm for what he was doing.I would certainly recommend this trip to all and would love to go back and do it again myself.
Danny was the perfect host for our trip. Knowledgeable, considerate, happy to help when needed. His knowledge of the area was great, and took us to some incredible sights including the lesser known penguin beach. Having a car to ourselves was definitely a luxury we aren't used to, but Danny helped make that even more special. Onto the activities - the whale watching was brilliant - up close with some beautiful animals, and the vineyards we visited were exquisite too. Highly recommended.
We had a great time seeing the whales and wine tasting. Our guide was Cornileus. He was very friendly and had a good knowledge of the area and wine. He took us to a wonderful spot for lunch and stopped at a few places on the trip for us to see animals and markets!
We had an incredible day, seeing the whales, penguins and wine tasting. But what really made the day was our driver/guide, Samson who was incredibly knowledgeable and kept us entertained all day and couldn't do enough for us. I would highly recommend this tour and if you are lucky you might just get Samson as your guide. Thank you for a wonderful day.
Just by chance we had the same driver both days for our privately booked tours. Let me start by saying how great it was to get to know Barnabas M. He is a South Africa Specialist so besides taking us to the most beautiful coastal places he also gave us detailed history behind what we were seeing. Beautiful vistas, penguins, seals, whales and don't let me forget beautiful wineries! It was two days of pure fun, lots of laughter and he's flexible to change up things last minute should you desire a longer stay at any one destination. He wasn't watching his watch to be done with his day he went out of his way to make sure we saw what we wanted and had a good time, no matter what time that meant he clocked out. I highly recommend both these tours and asking for Barnabas.
I thought I should copy and paste my reply from previous review and add in that we saw Southern Right Whales on our excursion. We actually watched a pod of about 4. Off in the distance we could see a whale showing off his tail as ours never did that. We did not witness any breaching but I enjoyed the tour.
Ask Barnabas to take you to Creation Winery. Do the 7 course small plate/wine tasting, the food is outstanding! A beautiful day that was.
