It is the season of the (Southern Right) Whale

Southern Right Whale tale

One of the advantages of staying on the south western cape coast is the variety of natures wonders. From late June (mostly) to late December you can see a even more diverse selection of whales – especially in the bays – as the Southern Right Whales leave the open seas for our coastline for a bit of breeding and calving before once again moving south to the fertile polar waters.

Ocean Blue Adventures  operates a very successful whale watching tour from Plettenberg Bay’s central beach – they have recently had no shortage of amazing photos and encounters to share. You can see a range of their photos on our Facebook page  or on their blog.

Of course you don’t have to go far out to see to view these large mammals – you could simply stay at either of our Keurboomstrand properties , our Noetzie Properties or even Cliff House in Knysna and watch them from the deck/terrace!

Even out of season you can see pods of dolphins and non-seasonal whales such as the Bryde’s Whale.

A walk at the Robberg Nature Reserve could also result in whale sightings during season especially on the Plettenberg Bay side.
