Whale Watchers Inn is a guest house situated in one of South Africa's most beautiful and unspoilt seaside resorts, Witsand - overlooking the magnificent San Sebastian Bay.
The Inn is situated ± 100 metres from the beach and is within walking distance of the mouth of the Breede River.
As Witsand is only a 3 hour drive from Cape Town and 2 hours from George. Just half way between Cape Town and Knysna, it is a welcome stop on your Garden Route tour.
From here our guests are within easy reach of the Malgas Pont, De Hoop Nature Reserve, Swellendam, the Bontebok Park, Barrydale, Ashton, Robertson Wine Route and Montague before moving onto the greater Garden Route area.
Witsand has one of the largest collections of whales during the whaling season which is from June to the end of November.
Guests can watch from the comfort of their room or the balcony of the guest house, as the whales bring their babies into the breakers right in front of us.
