Southern Right Charters is a leading boat-based whale watching operator which has been operating since 1999. We offer boat-based whale and dolphin watching tours from the New Harbour in Hermanus, the Capital of the Cape Whale Coast. We operate within the local waters of Walker Bay, regarded as one of the best whale watching areas in the world. We are a small team with a big passion for whales and the marine environment.
Whale watching in Hermanus should be at the top of your to-do list when visiting Cape Town and the Garden Route. Our boat-based whale watching tours depart, daily, in season, from the New Harbour in Hermanus.
Over the past 20 years, Southern Right Charters has grown an industry-wide reputation as a leading operator within South Africa and worldwide. The company is progressive, environmentally sensitive and operates under the ethos of ‘Observing NOT Disturbing’. As such, the safety and conservation of the whales and marine life is principal. The Whale & Dolphin watching permit allows us to approach the whales up to 50m, and being curious creatures, they usually come right up to the boat. Southern Right Charters believes it is our obligation to ensure the service offered is informative and educational.
