Whale Watching

  • Description

Get up close and personal with the Southern Right Whales from our deck or on Simon's Town Boat Company’s Whale Watching Boat trip departing from Simons' Town. From July to November the Southern Right whales are plentiful in the bay and you can be assured of a sighting. They hold the sole permit for boat-based whale watching in the western half of the False Bay area from between Cape Point and Strandfontein. This area is sheltered from the open ocean, surrounded by stunning views and provides an ideal winter home for the Southern Right Whales. Interacting with these gigantic & magnificent mammals (the size of 12 elephants) alongside the boat is an experience that will stay with you for the rest of your life. Be ready to photograph a Southern Right Whale breaching or giving you a friendly wave with its tail. Sightings of Bryde’s Whales, Humpback Whales, Dolphins and Orcas are also common.
