Best Vantage Points to watch Whales in Hermanus
Have a whale of a time! In town, the best vantage points from which to spot the whales are along the 12km cliff path from New Harbour to Grotto Beach: Gearings Point, Sievers Point and Die Gang are popular spots to whip out your binoculars. Whales have also popped up within 5km of the rocks at Bientangs Cave. For real-time updates on whale sightings, go and find the worlds only whale crier, who walks through the town daily from 10am to 4pm in the whale-watching season, starting at the Old Harbour, following Main Rd. to the Tourist office, and then doubling back via Long St. and the Market Square. He blows his horn to keep everyone abreast of the latest whale sightings in the bay and will answer the questions of every eager tourist.
