Hermanus is famous for being the best destination for land-based whale watching. This has transformed the town from a sleepy fishing village, in to a bustling seaside town, with a wide range of hotels, shops and restaurants on offer. It also boasts spectacular views, winding cliffs, lush mountains and deep dark seas.

Southern right wales are common in the Walker Bay area but you can also spot some killer whales if you are lucky. The town is also home to the Whale House Museum where you can learn all about these fabulous animals. The town even has a whale-crier, a man who walks through the town announcing that whales are in the bay – so you will never miss them!
If you’re brave enough, you can also take part in a once in a lifetime activity – shark diving! Dryer Island is full of sharks for you to swim with, just climb in the cage and come face to face with a great white! Those who are less willing to face their fears can relax on the boat and keep an eye out for breaching sharks!
Hermanus also has a variety of other activities that you can take part in, from wine tasting and hiking to relaxing on a beach, there is so much choice! Start your day at Hemel-En-Aarde wine route to sample wine in stunning locations. Then head to Fernkloof Nature reserve for a relaxing hike and finally finish your day with a sunset picnic a Kammabaai beach, also known as Lovers Cove.

Fabulous service. I rang to ask about our short break to Istanbul and it was booked for us within the hour. You can’t get better service than that. Thank you Dave FeltonPosted 9 hours ago
Kelly arranged my recently booked multi centre holiday, having used eShores on a couple of occasions previous the usual high standards remain! They get an understanding of you requirements, pull together a proposed itinerary, and then happily amend/ provide alternative costings for different hotels/ flights as required once you get in to the detail of what you want (easier to do with their proposed itinerary!). Great service, and at a good cost!Posted 17 hours ago

Our holiday when we were able to travel was fantastic exceeding our expectations ,and we feel certain that we will be using eShores for our next trip .Posted 1 week ago
We have just returned from a fantastic holiday at the Habtoor Grand Resort in Dubai - all organised by Kadie. The location of this hotel is at the end of the beach, near to the Sky Diving school, and the new Marina. It's also close to The Walk which has many shops and restaurants. Staff and service at the hotel were 5* and we would reccommend the upgrade to Club Rooms. We have travelled several times with eShores to different regions all of which were organised by Kadie. From our initial enquiry we are always given options on where to stay, activities and excursions and any potential offers that are available. The service provided by Kadie and eShores is exemplary and we have never had an issue using them. Looking forward to our next adventure to Australia - organised by Kadie of course.Posted 1 week ago
I can’t rate eShores enough and Andy in particular. Not only did he find us the best package for the best value but he was also very supportive and reassuring when I needed to contact him before and even during the trip with a couple of questions. Everything was organised like clockwork and took all the stress out. Next time I won’t bother shopping around and will go directly to eShores.Posted 1 week ago
Matthew has looked after our holidays for several years and is very efficient and friendly. I always feel we have got the best deal and have never had any cause for complaint with E ShoresPosted 1 week ago
