The Whale deck
Maintained by the ramsgate conservancy
In The Ramsgate area The Whale Deck & Conservancy is an icon for eco tourism and environmental education. The deck has the best view for whale & dolphin watching and moon watching! The beautiful deck has been revamped in the past year and is now wheelchair accessible too.
The most ocean activity is seen from May to November where you can see Humpback, Southern right and Brydes whales, along with a range of dolphins. Our most eventful time of year along the coastline is the Sardine Run between June & August, when the greatest shoal on earth passes our little town, bringing with it a tremendous amount of bird, sea life and excitement!
A “Mooddeckers” event is held every full moon at the deck, where you can enjoy the beautiful moon rise and bring a picnic along, a small fee of R20 is charged which goes towards the conservancy. More information available around full moons on the Southern Explorer or Ramsgate Conservancy Facebook pages.
