Overnight? Stay at accommodation in Simons Town, in Western Cape

Simon's Town Boat Company is the sole permit holder for boat based whale watching for the western half of False Bay - stretching from Strandfontein all the way to Cape Point.

This area is sheltered from the open ocean, surrounded by stunning views and provides an ideal winter home for the Southern Right Whales. They visit each year between June and November to mate, calve, or simply to get away from the icy Antarctic winter.

Interacting with these gigantic and magnificent mammals (the size of 12 elephants) alongside their boat is an experience that will stay with you for the rest of your life. Be ready to photograph one breaching or giving you a friendly wave with its tail. Sightings of Brydes whales, Humpback whales, Orcas and Dolphins are also common.
