Directions to Whale Watchers Crows Nest

from Cape Town International Airport
To get from Cape Town International Airport you exit the parking lot and proceed along the N2 highway towards Cape Town for about 10 - 12 minutes. As you approach the base of Table Mountain keep left, turning onto the Muizenberg M3 highway. Continue on this highway through Bishop's Court, passing the turn-offs to Wynberg and Constantia.

About 20 - 25 minutes after having left the airport you get to the end of the M3 Muizenberg highway in the form of a T-junction and traffic lights. Turn left here and then first right at the next T-junction. Now follow your nose along the coastal road passing through Westlake, Muizenberg, St James, Kalk Bay and then into Fish Hoek. Keep going through the town centre until you reach the one and only traffic circle at which you should keep left - heading towards Simon's Town and Cape Point. At the first set of traffic lights after the circle turn right and head up the hill keeping left. After about 100 metres turn right into High Way. Whale Watchers is number 82 on the right hand side about 100 metres after going over the brow of the hill.
