Whale Watching Hermanus


Hermanus and Walker Bay are known as the best place in the world to do land-based whale-watching. This is why we want you to experience “Whale Watching Hermanus” as part of your stay at Mosaic. Between June and December, Southern Right Whales from Antarctica migrate to our sheltered bays to court, mate and calf. They can seen as close as 20 meters from the shore, breaching, spraying, lobtailing. Our guests’ favorite place for peaceful, private viewing is from the top of sand dunes at a secluded part of Walker Bay Beach. We offer 4×4 beach excursions to take you to the serene venue. A short 5 km away, our quad bikes will get you there in a minute while you get ready for the show.

The shoreline whale watching experience is included as part of your stay at our Lagoon Lodge, and we are most excited to provide you this experience. It is simply not every day that an opportunity like this arises! If you desire to stay at one of our Cottages then you can easily reserve a whale watching beach excursion to your stay. We charge R 300 per person for a 1.5-2 hour adventure. If you think you might even barely enjoy this adventure, we encourage you to give it a try. Honestly, we have little doubt that this will not far exceed your expectations. The migration season for the whales is from June through December, so make sure to book stay with us during these months if you simply must see the whales!
