Whales in late June

Does anyone know if there are whales to see in Hermanus area around June. We've started booking our safari and it seems that we will end up in the Capetown area 3rd week of June. We had wanted to take advantage of June safari rates and be in Capetown area by 1st week of July but since some of the dates we planned have been booked we will most like end up doing our safari early June.

With name like Purplefish I am amazed that you need to know about where and when whales will be seen in Hermanus.

OK seriously Hermanus whale sitings in June are a 50/50 situation. You may be lucky and then you may not be lucky.

It seems as if you are definitely coming to Cape Town so my suggestion to you would be to on arrival start asking around as to whale sitings in Hermanus or contact the Hermanus Tourist Bureau who will tell you whether sitings had been made in the past days before your arrival in Cape Town. If your responses are positive then you can easily take a day trip out to Hermnaus so as to enjoy the whales. If you are intent on staying in Hermanus and are worried about reservations in June then dont let this bother you as there will be lots of places that you would be able to walk into for accommodation as this would still be regarded as low season.

Remember that the whales come to Walker Bay annually to as to have their young
and not to perform for locals and visitors. Thus nothing is definite when it comes to their arrival and departure date.

Hope this helps

Very proudly part of the wonderful nation of South Africa
