A Whale Of A Heritage Route is a tourist, business and educational initiative that extends from False Bay, Cape Town to beyond Lambert’s Bay on the West Coast and vice versa.

The Route offers great land and boat-based whale watching in season and a large treasure chest of cultural and natural historical attractions to explore year-round. The latter will be arranged into ambles, rambles, trails in 2015 and are suitable for team-building hunts.

The twenty four land-based whale and dolphin viewing sites vary considerably and include some restaurants and accommodation as well as the coastal train on the Cape Peninsula. Some offer elevated and thus unparalleled, panoramic views from which to watch whales and dolphins interacting.

Whale viewing sites in alphabetical order are: Blouberg, Camps Bay, Doringbaai, Draaihoek, Dwarskersbos, Elandsbaai, False Bay, Hout Bay, Jacobsbaai, Kommetjie, Laaiplek, Lambert's Bay, Langebaan, Llandudno, Noordhoek, Paternoster, Rocher Pan, Saldanha, Scarborough, St Helena Bay, Strandfontein WC, Table Bay, WC National Park and Yzerfontein. Note that St Helena Bay offers Southern Right Whale watching year-round.

There are licenced boat-based watching opportunities at False Bay, Hout Bay and Table Bay. The boats offer a completely different experience by providing access to whales off-shore, where large pods of whales, not visible from land, are often spotted. Another obvious benefit of a licensed boat is proximity for potentially award-winning photographs.

For further information on where to watch and for the latest sightings and trends either check out the sightings logs (WHERE TO WATCH) or call or sms the whale watch hotline - 079 391 2105.
