Whale Watching

Our motto: ‘Observing NOT Disturbing’

Southern Right Charters departs daily from our private floating jetty in the Hermanus New Harbour, Western Cape (weather permitting).

Our whale-watching trips are informative and educational, magical, definitely an experience to be treasured.

Miroshga, a custom-built catamaran, complies with all safety regulations as per marine authorities. She is fitted with 42 individual high-backed chairs, onboard toilet and observation/photographic platform.

A qualified/registered skipper and whale specialist guide are in charge of the vessel.

We are licensed to approach the whales up to 50 m, we then stop and the decision
is left entirely to the whales as to whether or not they wish to approach the boat – being
curious creatures, they usually come right up to our vessel.

We mostly encounter Southern Right whales, seals, penguins, marine birds – and
are fortunate to often see dolphins, Bryde’s ( our resident whale) and Humpbacks on
many of our trips.

The Southern Right Charters crew look forward to welcoming you on board ‘Miroshga’.
