Tour Itinerary

Day 1: Cape Town to Hermanus
We depart from Cape Town or Stellenbosch early on Monday morning for Hermanus. (Shark cage diving clients will be picked up very early in the morning by the diving operator, and will miss the first half of Day 1). We follow the scenic coastal road, stopping at Betties Bay to view a colony of endangered African penguins. You can spend the afternoon in Hermanus, famous for hundreds of Southern Right Whales that visit during the whale season (July to November). There are some great local markets selling fresh organic produce, artisan breads, handmade cheeses and more. In the afternoon we will drive on to Cape Agulhas, the most southern tip of Africa, where we visit a viewpoint known as the “real” place where the warm Indian and cold Atlantic Oceans meet. Many sailors have met their stormy end here, with the violent swell and changing currents pushing ships onto the shallow waters of the Agulhas Bank.
