Hi zuckermman,

I think it depends on where you will be visiting but I can tell you that you have a jolly good chance down South. :wink:
Our family home is in De Kelders just across the bay from Hermanus and we often see whales in December. I think you'd probably have a good chance in False Bay too. Cape point should be a good place to visit!

JDW is correct, they start their journey back in October but every year a few females with small calves stay until later when the calves are strong enough to make their way back to the Arctic.

These pics were taken on the 24th of December. In the first pic, 5 of them, in the 2nd, mom and baby.

Good luck! :D
