The southern right whales are returning and Hermanus is pulling out the stops: It’s the 31st annual Hermanus Whale Festival this weekend. This popular, fun fest kicks off whale-watching season and this year there’s a wonderful, new attraction.
The Whale Beerfest, organised by the restaurants Ficks and The Wild in Hermanus, is a celebration of the region’s growing offering of craft beers, and the event will offer loads of tastings and back-to-back entertainment featuring local musicians. So why not make a weekend of it? The Hermanus Whale Festival is on from the 30 September to 2 October, and entrance is R50.
The Whale Beerfest, situated in the Eco-Marine Tent, has become the festival’s biggest attraction, located in a prime spot at Gearings Point.
