Travel Blogs from Hermanus

Hermanus bound

A travel blog entry by shamiandlauren


... was challenging being that we were one of few cars in the town. It turned out just fine but with expensive gas.

We made it to Hermanus and it is an adorable whale watching town. Too bad it is not the time of year for whale watching. It would be amazing to see one. Non the less, it's absolutely beautiful here.

We got some good seafood eats at Lemon-butta. Yum yum

Shark diving tomorrow ...

Sunshine, Wind & Clouds

A travel blog entry by ashburdett

Apparently that is classed as bad weather. Shark diving was cancelled unfortunately, and sea kayaking with the whales wasn't on either, so I booked a whale-watching tour for 3pm and went on a 10k walk along the cliff path. Glorious sunshine and I was in just trousers and t-shirt with sunglasses on. Everyone else I passed was considerably wrapped up.

... 3’. Now everyone always talks about Jackass and I’ve never really understood what it was so I decided it to watch me and because everyone else had gone to bed, I was alone – bad move.

It's sad but I've taught them the Hokey Kokey song and dance and they love it - maybe they'll dance their way out of it.

Wow, I've rambled on ...

Shark Attack

A travel blog entry by rachandnick

... and when in season, whales. No one mentioned the sharks!

A little shark was curious in us so decided to pay us a visit, circling our kayak. At first we thought we'd finally seen a dolphin, or maybe a baby whale that had got lost and arrived early. But no. It was actually a shark.

To be fair, it was near the end of our time when we we're a little bit tired form paddling, but it gave us a booster to get back to shore quickly.
