De Kelders in the Overberg on the Cape Whale Coast

Die Kelders, so named after the “Drup Kelders” which are naturally formed caves which have deep freshwater rock pools filled by water seeping from a freshwater fountain, known also as one of the natural wonders of the old Colony. The natural formation of stalagmites and stalactites are evident throughout the caves and tours are conducted regularly by appointment.

De Kelders is an expansive coastal town stretching from Perlemoenbay to the well-known "Plaat" a popular fishing spot where thousands of silver-grey fighters are caught.

De Kelders offers one of the finest vantage points from which to view whales. The sweeping seascapes offer unimpeded views of these gentle giants who frequent our shores and predominantly De Kelders, where they come to calve before migrating to Antarctic waters to feed until the following season.

Whale watching trips are easily arranged from Walker Bay by licensed operators who will take you within meters from these gentle giants of the ocean.

De Kelders offers a wonderful day trip for whale watching, hiking and cave exploration. There is a bakery, excellent coffee shop with the most awesome view of Walker Bay, restaurant and bar and several lookout points to stop and just take in the magical scenery.
