Totally worth it! It was cold and windy, but the experience was amazing! Came very close to the whales. :) But yes we have to move away, you dont want to be squashed if the whales decide to breach on top of you!! I even heard the whales make funny noises.. Riaan the guide was great and very informative. Thanks... More

Herman and his staff run an excellent operation. i was lucky enough to try three of his experiences: Boat based whale watching, private luxury Catamaran sundowner cruise and his wonderful early morning kayak trip. As the only kayak operator inside the whale sanctuary, he offers a very high standard of equipment, guiding and is entirely ethical and sensitive to the... More

We were a group of 10 friends and we had a really good time. Walker Bay staff was on time and friendly! The trip was about 1h30/2h and we spotted a whale 50m away ;)

We had a great time in kayaks paddling around the bay. Saw Whales breaching and seals. Very friendly nice people run this. R400 each, bargain. You can also purchase at reasonable price a copy of the pics they take on you tour.

The kayak trip by itself was great fun. Being out on the ocean was such a zen yet exciting experience. We saw whales breaching and came within touching distance of seals. Fun trip!

We had the pleasure of experiencing the Fatbike tour with Dave. As a novice cyclist, i was a little nervous when I saw those monster bikes but soon realised they were pure exhilarating pleasure to ride. The trail was easy enough for a beginner like me and at times challenging enough to satisfy the more experienced cyclist. The spectacular scenery... More

Riaan explained the technique of rowing to us and let us do some stretch exercises before we start to row. It was a fantastic experience with... More

I've always wanted to go whale watching in Hermanus and having booked with Walker Bay Adventures, I certainly was not disappointed. I booked online well in advance for their boat trip - the entire process was effortless. On the day, we were greeted with friendly staff and blessed with a gorgeous sunny day. Before we jumped onto their purpose-built catamaran,... More
