EMIRATES Holidays is offering adventure-seekers excursions to watch huge whales frolicking just meters from the Cape shoreline in South Africa during the current whale-watching season.
These excursions are included in the company's A World of Choice Africa and Indian Ocean brochure. Dedicated whale watching holidays can also be tailored to travellers' individual requirements.
Every year from June to November, Southern Right whales travel thousands of miles to breed in the bays of the Cape coast, followed by migratory Humpback whales and their calves staying until January.
The whales, some more than 15 metres long and weighing around 60 tonnes, can be seen in various bays along the Cape coast, acclaimed as one of the world's best locations for whale-watching.
Hermanus, situated some 140 kilometres southwest of Cape Town, has proclaimed itself "Whale Capital of the World" and further east, Plettenberg Bay is also a renowned whale-watching destination.
At Hermanus, whales can be observed lolling in the whales mere metres offshore and can be watched closely from the resort's scenic cliff top walks. Plettenberg Bay offers boat trips for close-up whale experiences as well as encounters with Brydes whales, dolphins, orcas and seals.
