A Whale of a Heritage Route

Western Cape » Cape Town

A Whale Of A Heritage Route is a tourist, business and educational initiative that extends from False Bay, Cape Town to beyond Lambert’s Bay on the West Coast and vice versa.

The Route offers great land and boat-based whale watching in season and a large treasure chest of cultural and natural historical attractions to explore year-round. The latter will be arranged into ambles, rambles, trails in 2015 and are suitable for team-building hunts.

The twenty four land-based whale and dolphin viewing sites vary considerably and include some restaurants and accommodation as well as the coastal train on the Cape Peninsula. Some offer elevated and thus unparalleled, panoramic views from which to watch whales and dolphins interacting.
