The small fishing harbor at Struisbaai offers excellent opportunities for photographers as the small-scale fishers and line-fishers land their catches of fish. In addition, the harbour is well known for the Short-tailed Sting-rays that come to feed in the shallow waters on any fish offal.
Recently, a blind Cape Fur Seal has taken up residence at the harbour and is now fed by the fishers. The old wooden fishing boats or “Chukkies” as they are known also offer good opportunities for photography, particularly at dusk as the light softens and the lights of the harbour add mood to the scene.
