Whale watching in Knysna
From the southern tip of Africa moving up along the coast, there are a number of Whale viewing spots. Each year Southern Right whales migrate to the coastal waters of the Western Cape (Knysna is located here) to calve. This can be seen from June to November.
About 37 species of whales and dolphins can be found in the waters off South Africa. The Whale route is most famous for sightings of Southern Right Whales and Humpback Whales. Whales can be found in Knysna Lagoon, near the Knysna Heads and Sedgefield.
