Gordon's Bay is the start of the Whale Route to Hermanus. Follow the R44S in the direction of Kleinmond and just outside Gordon's Bay is your first stop to view over False Bay and Gordon's Bay and you can be lucky to spot the Dolphins and Whales. The whale season is between June and December every year.
Take the R44 south from Gordon’s Bay to Kleinmond, you are at the start of the Whale Route and one the most beautiful scenic drives in the Western Cape, called Clarence Drive. It will bring you along the magnificent Hottentots Hollands Mountains on one side and the ocean coming ashore in False Bay.
