My Home away from home

I have been back about six times over the years. Both my wife and i love Hilton and the guys who always make our stays with them special. On the beach access which is nice.

3 of us dived with The Whaler this last week and were happily surprised with the friendly, accommodating staff we dealt with there. Had fantastic dives. Ponto do Ouro lived up to its reputation as a top dive destination.

I am a diving professional, with over 2,000 dives, and I would never enter the water with this company!!! Especially with Hilton as my guide!!! I was staying in the accommodation nearby to The Whaler and inquired about diving early in the morning. I spoke with Hilton and asked, when do you leave (for the diving trip), and he said... More

I have been to the Whaler for my fourth time now and it never disappoints! It is great value for money and in a very convenient position. The room I stayed in was beach facing and had 4 single beds with pillows, sheets and blankets (very basic) with mosquito nets hung up, a mirror and a plug point for two... More

Went diving with the Whaler 3 times over New Year. As an inexperienced diver (I have only done about 8 qualified dives) I was nervous and panicked on my second dive (my own fault- absolutely nothing to do with the dive master, who was great). On my return to The Whaler I decided that I was definitely quitting diving. Hilton... More

Personal attention and friendly staff. Hilton was not there, but Shaun took good care of us and he knows his stuff when it comes to diving and fishing!

Situated right on the beach, The Whaler provided everything I needed in terms of self catering accommodation. Fully equipped communal kitchen, lounge/chill area, braai and clean communal men's and lady's bathrooms. The reed rooms are ideal accommodation for a beach holiday, well ventilated, cool in the heat of the day and you can't beat falling asleep to the sound of... More
