Witsand Whale Hike

View our Southern Right Whales from the most magnificent lookout point at Infanta Bay. These beautiful giants will amaze you.

Join the team from PiliPili Adventure Centre for a unique whale hike experience that only runs from June to November each year to accommodate whale season. Lisa will take you on a stand up paddle tour across the mouth of the famous Breede River where you’ll leave your boards and hike a short 5km to the lookout point at Infanta. Incredible land-based viewing with Southern Right Whales right below you, who come into the bay annually to feed and calve! Experience first hand why Witsand is known as the whale nursery of South Africa. Thefynbos you will encounter on your hike is also worth mentioning, and incredibly spectacular during the months of August and September.

The trip takes about 4 hours with refreshments provided as well as a light brunch upon return.

For those who prefer to be taken across by boat this can also be arranged.
