Calling on Durban’s ex-Whaling Community

Sodurba – official body for tourism of South Durban, KZN Whale Coast, Wildoceanssa and the Bluff Whale Heritage Site, are calling on Durban’s past whaling community to share stories, memories and the history of the whaling era in Durban and the old whaling station in Bluff.

If you, your family or a friend worked at, visited or have any memories of the old whaling station, or whaling in the nineteenth and twentieth century, we would love to hear from you. We hope to collate all your information into one place, to build our knowledge base and improve our understanding of the whaling era in Durban.
