Yzerfontein Harbour is a good place to sit and watch the fishing boats returning with their catch for the day.
It is also a good vantage point to look for whales. The Local NSRI Station is situated in the Harbour. This magnificent NSRI station includes boat storage for two vessels, a garage for a tractor, an operations room, crew facilities, a training room as well as a trauma counselling room. 1911 Yzerfontein’s original harbour was mainly used for mining salt. In the 1950’s the Harbour was repurposed to accommodate the fishing industry.
