Whale watching in and around Simonstown Cape Town can be a humbling experience, especially when gazing upon these gigantic yet graceful creatures, from just a few metres away. Whale watching is at its best from May to November when they come to the warm waters off of Cape Town to mate and calve.
Simonstown offers fantastic views over False Bay where you can see Southern Right Whales, the rare Brydes Whale, and Humpback Whales frolicking in the ocean. Orcas and Sperm Whales can also be seen although arenâ€™t as prolific off of this part of the coastline.
Whale watching can be done from many spots along the coast or from boats departing from Simonstown or Cape Town harbour. The most convenient would be from your bedrooms window at Simonstown Guest House which overlooks the bay below – seeing these magnificent creatures in their natural habitat is an experience not to be missed.
Whale season is July - October
