Meanwhile, a drive anywhere from Cape Point all the way to Hermanus via Gordon’s Bay may well allow you a glimpse of a Southern Right Whale waving a friendly tail, blowing a fountain of spray or best of all leaping clean out of the water in a breach.
These reminders point to the arrival of spring, and also remind us that it’s almost time for the annual Hermanus Whale Festival.
The annual Whale Festival is a celebration of all things whale related, and a full programme for all ages is planned each year.
The 2009 Hermanus Whale Festival’ s preliminary programme has now been published and it’s jam packed with, among other things:
- A kids market
- Whale wine festival
- Whales & Wheels Vintage Car Show
- Classic Charity Golf Event
- Comedy show
- Music including an ABBA tribute and well known Country Music legends
- A host of adventure activities including shark cage diving
