Whale Watching

Hermanus is recognised by the WWF (World Wildlife Fund) as one of the 12 best whale watching destinations in the world. Guests can view the magestic animals from land or take a chartered boat out to sea and enjoy them up close.

Shark Cage Diving

For the more adventurous at heart, Hermanus is situated a mere 48 km from Gansbaai where boats head out to sea daily in search of the magestic great white shark.


A stone’s throw away from The Gallery Studios guests can treat themselves to a kayak in the Walker Bay Harbour. In whale season, guests are often surprised by a curious whale or two bobbing up next to the kayak.


For guests wishing to enjoy life from a different view point we recommend taking a drive out to Elgin for a day of zip-lining fun.

Walks and Hikes

Hermanus boasts a number of well maintained hiking and walking trails. Should you wish to embark on one of these routes, be sure to visit the Hermanus Tourism Centre to collect a map. Alternatively, we can book a guided walk for you.
