Abalone Tours

Heart of Abalone tours are conducted on one of Abagold's farms in the New Harbour, Hermanus. Abagold is one of the first abalone farms in South Africa, and currently the largest single producer of exported abalone. We create awareness for the conservation of the South African Abalone, Haliotis Midae which is an endangered species.


There are three tour options, all of which show-case this magnificent and mysterious animal. Find out more how the 10,000 abalones are kept healthy in 40,000 baskets.


Enjoy a tasting of this rare delicacy as on optional extra to any of the tour options.


A variety of products are available in our shop - from polished abalone shells, abalone pearls & abalone inspired jewellery to canned abalone & delicious recipes.
