Whale of Trail Event Cancelled!

Such heavy hearts that the official event is cancelled! But we are still open and so are our many other trails - so please feel free to come anyway and enjoy the arrival of the whales!

Harpoon in our Hearts.

Whale of Trail 2021 cannot go ahead on 31 July.

All entrants please check your email.

We desperately tried to make this happen for all of us and are deeply disappointed that CapeNature, duly guided by the provisions of the current COVID-19 regulations, has had to make the decision to postpone the event.

A small positive is that we can now look forward to offering the genuine experience next year. That is, Whale as we know it - with the energy of a start chute, the freedom of the trail, the joy of human connection and the celebration, all together, at the finish.

We just WANT to be able to hug you!
