Whale-Watching at Hermanus (Click to enlarge)
Hermanus, S. Africa, offers some of the best land-based whale-watching around, with whales sometimes getting as close as 30 feet to the cliffs and rocks jutting into the bay.  The town boasts its own 'whale-crier' who alerts visitors to the presence of whales and their whereabouts
