Trip Status

Our life size whale model, Bakithemba, affectionately named after one of the companies members received a makeover! The Southern Right Charters team decided the whale should be utilized for the sale of our DVD’s which are produced for each trip we do.

Souvenir DVD’s

The professional DVD also features a chapter on Hermanus & surrounds, ensuring all guests who purchase or view the DVD see all Hermanus has to offer. The whale’s tail, now converted into an attractive bench lends itself as great photo opportunity for all visitors with the picturesque backdrop of Hermanus.

The fibreglass life size southern right whale is one of five that were made in 2008 for the use in a movie production. The whales were filmed in various locations along the coastline of the Western Cape, with Hermanus New Harbour being one of them. In 2009 the whale model found its new home at Southern Right Charters in the Hermanus New Harbour.
