Whale Watching

Cape Town and Hermanus are the hot spots for land-based whale watching and Cape Town is one of the best locations for boat-based whale watching. Oceans Echo is perched high above the ocean so when the whales are making the most of the warmer surface water, you can see them in all their glory: bubble-netting, breaching, lob tailing, spy hopping, blowing, grunting and even mating.

Oceans Echo is fortuitously positioned right above one of their favourite spots and offers spectacular whale watching opportunities between August and November. The whales are often visible only meters from the shore, as they travel the coastline between Hermanus and False Bay, through the shoreline near the Cape Point Nature Reserve and as far as Hout Bay, with some brilliant sightings possible from Chapman’s Peak Drive. Whales have also been spotted on the Atlantic side of Cape Town and even at the V & A Waterfront, although this is less common.
