Scenic Flights in Hermanus or whale watching flights.
The crisp clarity of the sea-breeze cleaned air around the holiday town of Hermanus is ideal for a scenic flight. The beauty of this area, held between the sea and the pretty Kleinriviersberge on a narrow coastal plain, can be fully appreciated from the sky. Ecologically important estuaries look like turquoise puddles from up high.
Besides the spectacular coastal scenery, unparalleled sightings of some of the oceans most exciting creatures can just about be guaranteed. The gigantic Southern Right whale is a regular visitor to these shores, as is the Humpback whale and the sheltered curve of Walker Bay is one of the best places in the world to observe them. With great white sharks and pods of dolphins also inhabiting these Indian Ocean waters aerial photographers are in for a treat especially with the low-level flying afforded by some of the aircraft. In fact, between June and August there have been days when over 150 whales have been sighted in the bay. Your sharp-eyed pilot will make sure you’re in the right place at the right time.
