Marine activities are the backbone of this seaside town, with everything from dolphin and whale watching, to swimming with seals, kayaking, snorkelling and surfing available for visitors. A rare and complex marine system creates a rich habitat for marine life, including whales, seals, dolphins and pelagic seabirds. The town's history lies in whaling (not the watching variety!) and relics of this past can be found around the township.
