drone exploration experience

Take home video footage & photos of the amazing things you’ve seen (maybe even some whales) on your trip here in Hermanus!

overview

There is just something different when seeing a place from the air. It’s a different perspective that we are not used to see, which makes it truly unique. Fly our DJI Phantom 4 Pro drone at different strategic scenic locations, and take home some spectacular memories, and footage!

highlights

  • Explore best scenic locations in and around Hermanus
  • Fly the drone yourself (if it’s your first time, you’ll learn how to fly it)
  • Get footage of whales/dolphins (season/presence permitting), beautiful coastline, unique mountains and vegetation, Hermanus village
  • Best quality with our drone – 4K video and 20MP photos
  • Visit one of the most beautiful and pristine beaches in the area
  • Short hike up historic Hoy’s Koppie to take in the view of the town

WHAT TO EXPECT

You’ll be picked up at your guest house / hotel and proceed to the place where Hermanus originated. Your knowledgeable guide will give a short history overview of the origin story of Hermanus.

Next you’ll proceed to the local marine tide pool, where you will be instructed, and get a chance to fly the drone to get some beautiful footage of the rugged Hermanus coastline, the old historic harbour, and the village perched between the mountains and ocean.

Hermanus has no shortage of gorgeous beaches – we will go and kick out our shoes at pristine Grotto beach, boasting Blue Flag status (to qualify for this status, certain standards of excellence must be met in the areas of amenities, safety, cleanliness, environmental information and environmental education) . You’ll also get another opportunity to fly the drone here and capture some footage.

Next stop is at Hoy’s Koppie to take in the views of the town (the koppie is in the middle of town), and learn about its significance… You’ll hear the intriguing story of the train station without an actual railway.

Our final stop, and arguably the highlight of the day, will be at the lookout point of Rotary Drive. We’ll drive up the windy road heading up the mountain passing through our unique fynbos vegetation as we go. We will not stop at the ‘regular’ lookout spot, but move to a more secluded, secret location with better views… You’ll be treated to THE BEST view in the Hermanus area, with panoramic views of the whole walker bay area, the lagoon, the mountains and the town below your feet!

You’ll have a final chance to fly the drone and capture amazing photos and video that will surely make friends and family back home jealous.

You will be dropped back at your accommodation, or in the CBD if preferred.
