Whale watching tips
Follow these AWESOME whale watching tips and enjoy the experience! #MargateAttractions
Whale watching can be a fantastic way to the spend day. Some of the best Whale watching can be done right from the deck at The Cock & Tail Café.
At any whale viewing deck you always need good sun protection. Be sure to bring a hat, sunglasses and sunscreen. Polarized sunglasses are best for whale watching (they filter out he sun reflecting from the water), and make sure to safely secure your hat and glasses so you wont loose them.
Taking good pictures of whales is more difficult than it seems. Often the whales are far away and their stunts only last seconds. You have to bring a camera with good zoom and have a quick aim + focus to make good pictures. If the whales are closer, making pictures becomes much easier.
Don’t spend all your time looking through your camera, but also put it away and enjoy the show with your own eyes!
Binoculars are great to zoom into a whale as soon as you spot it – bring some if you have them! With binoculars you can study the whale behaviors far better.
Food & beverages
Bring bottled water, snacks and a bag for your trash. Most whale watching
Forecasting and clothing
