Hermanus Whale Cruises
Besides whales, the company also offer a sight-seeing experience where you can interact with dolphins, seals, clawless otters and a variety of sea bird life. Cultural Tours where you meet the local people and learn more of their history, culture and environment is also available.
Hermanus Whale Cruises is operated by the Sandown Bay Fishing Company – owned by shareholders who are all from the previously disadvantaged community of Hawston.
The company’s future plans include expansion into Shark Cage Diving, transportation of tourists to destinations in the Overberg, as well as operating a Guest House, Sea Food Restaurant and abalone farm at Hawston. These activities will provide much needed job opportunities for the local community. A further aim of the company is the empowerment of women and the youth by means of training and providing the opportunities for them to become successful entrepreneurs in the Tourism Industry.
