Shark Cage Diving

South Africa was the first country to protect this super predator of the ocean. Seals are an important part of its diet and therefore Dyer Island is an important feeding ground for this endangered shark. It is one of the last places where Great White Sharks still occur in large numbers.

The great white shark Carcharodon carcharias is a protected species in South Africa. Permits are required for operators of shark cage diving from Cape Nature Conservation and the Sea Fisheries Research Institute to operate in the channel between the two rocky reefs of Dyer and Geyser Islands where the sharks are usually to be found.

Whale Watching

Whales can be spotted by looking for white patches in the ocean where the waves break on their bodies. When they breach they also cause a huge white splash. Whales are along our coastline during the months of May to December, so make sure that you come to see them at the right time of year! Whales can be seen from land, but there are also many boat-based tours available. Seeing your first whale is an experience you will never forget.

Hermanus Golf Club

Hermanus Golf Club has always experienced heavy traffic at certain times of the year. Despite this, the club, blessed with a dedicated and professional management has over many years deservedly gained a reputation for excellent year round standards.

The whole feel of the course has been modernised with shaping fairways, grassy mounds, bunkers, trees and rocky water hazards all adding a visual, as well as a challenging flow to the course.
