Hermanus, South Africa. this very windy bay, is the favourit place for whales to come. Every year from September till November the Souther Right Whales visit the bay and offers the best shore-based whale watching in the world. The size is amazing: When a calf is born, it is between 5 and 6 meters long. by adulthood (approximately 10 years) the males are on average 15.2 m and the females 16.5 m. You can watch them from the cliffs or from a boat. Hermanus is a lovely liitle village with friendly people and an amazing nature!
