On Wednesday, 25th July, the world’s only ‘Whale Crier’ joined us on our morning whale watching trip.

The Whale Crier  arrived at the Whale Shack, our booking office, with a feather in his cap, a sandwich board proudly perched on his chest and a curly piece of dried kelp- his horn, which makes a sound that has become famously renowned for alerting visitors on the cliffs of Hermanus to whales in the bay.

With spectacular weather conditions our boat, Miroshca headed off along the coast in search of the ‘gentle giants’ of the ocean. The guests not only enjoyed having the Whale Crier on board but also enjoyed close encounters with Southern right whales and Humpback whales too!

Take a look at the mini video clip of the Whale Crier enjoying boat based whale watching, be sure to see him in awe as the southern right whale came millimeters from our boat!
