Hermanus Whales – The Southern Right

Hermanus Whale Watching with the Southern Right

Our beloved Southern Right Whale. Watching these beautiful creatures in Hermanus, South Africa, is an absolute delight. The total population numbers of the southern right whale are thought to be around ten thousand individuals.

This is due to a mother’s choice to remain loyal to past breeding areas, and young females are able to choose this loyalty when they are able to breed.
