Join Southern Right Charters for close encounters with gentle giants of the ocean. Southern Right Charters departs daily, weather permitting, from our private floating jetty in Hermanus, the capital of the Whale Coast. Our memorable whale-watching trips are informative and educational. We mostly encounter southern right whales, seals, penguins and marine birds, and often see dolphins, humpack and Bryde’s whales on many of our trips. We are licensed to go within 50m of the whales, but being curious creatures they usually come right up to the vessel. Be prepared for a magical experience, and one that you will treasure for years to come. Miroshca, the well-appointed, purpose-built catamaran, provides superior stability for passenger comfort. The 70-seater vessel has four different levels, allowing passengers the best viewing opportunities and enclosed areas for protection from sea spray and weather conditions.

Southern Right Charters has been in operation since 1999 & is fair trade certified.

Pick-up Points






We went last year with Southern Right Charters whale watching in the afternoon. It was fab. The staff and crew are very helpful and knowledgable. we saw 5 or 6 whales, some of them with young. The highlight was them playfully breaching. You get a drink and small snack onboard in with the price, which is a really nice touch. I would recomend them to anyone.



The Southern Right Charters Crew took me out last year for an AMAZING experience. They really went out their way to ensure all guests were happy, their boat is incredibly comfortable, and the whale sightings were something else. My highlight of the trip without doubt. Thank You Southern Right Charters.
