Guided Abalone Farm tours

Guided Abalone Farm tours

Our locally endemic Cape Whale Coast abalone, Haliotis Midae, is a well-known delicacy in Asian restaurants. This stretch of coastline is considered the “heart” of abalone habitat.

Join our guided abalone farm tours at the Heart Shed venue, followed by a walk to one of the largest and oldest abalone farms in South Africa, Abagold, located at the New Harbour of Hermanus. During the tour, you will witness firsthand the impressive technical infrastructure required to keep 16,000,000 abalone healthy and happily housed in their 40,000 baskets for almost five years until they reach a marketable “cocktail size” of about 250 grams. You’ll also have the opportunity to view the construction of South Africa’s first-ever wave energy converter.

After the tour, satisfy your appetite with a tasting platter to experience the deliciousness of abalone.
