Situated in Witsand, Whale Watchers Inn is located approximately 100 meters from the beach at San Sebastian Bay, which is well-known as “The Whale Nursery of South Africa.” The Inn is also within easy walking distance of the mouth of the mighty Breede River.

Johnny and Clair Pienaar started the guesthouse back in 1996, together with their housekeeper Emily, and they all continue to welcome you to this beautiful location.

All rooms offer TV’s, fridges and tea/coffee making facilities and Whale Watchers Inn also offers free WiFi Internet facilities to guests. A further bonus is that wheelchair friendly accommodation is also available.

Whale Watchers Inn welcomes both the young and older tourists to come and enjoy real old fashioned hospitality. Here you can escape the pressures of our modern daily life and enjoy an atmosphere where even the smallest details of your comfort are provided.

Families can enjoy their precious holiday moments together, as children are most welcome.

Attractions & Activities

Witsand is a quaint fishing village, located at San Sebastian Bay, right at the mouth of the mighty Breede River, home to the Big Cob. This small village is 300 kilometres from Cape Town along the Garden Route.

During your stay at Whale Watchers Inn you have the opportunity of whale watching from the comfort of your guesthouse balcony. Witsand offers excellent land-based whale watching and seeing a whale for the first time is an incredible experience. Watch as the magnificent 15 metre creature waves its massive tail and then hurls itself clear of the water in a breach - an amazing experience indeed.

While in Witsand, you can enjoy long, beautiful and totally unspoiled beaches, offering enjoyable and safe swimming conditions, as well as rock and surf fishing and sand boarding opportunities. Enjoy long strolls on the beach where you may be lucky and find one of the beautiful pansy shells or an even more precious Nautilus shell.

Witsand has become internationally famous as a kite-surfing destination. The area offers among the best kite-surfing conditions in the world. Experience surfing at the bend near the river mouth running parallel to the ocean, for added adventure and fun. Kite surfers are very welcome at Whale Watchers Inn, as is everyone looking for a fabulous holiday destination.
