Raggy Charters "Best Marine Adventures" in South Africa
Raggy Charters of Port Elizabeth which conducts whale, dolphin, penguin and sea bird watching cruises in Algoa Bay has been awarded the national Lilizela award for being "the best marine experience in South Africa".
The Lilizela awards are issued by South African Tourism at both Provincial and National levels. To win the "best" National award in a category is indeed something to be proud of.
Raggy Charters is well-known to tourists for its whale watching cruises but is also deeply involved in marine conservation in Algoa Bay especially, in conjunction with Dr Lorien Pichegru, studying the declining population of the African penguins on and around St Croix Island and making recommendations to South African National Parks as to protective measures which will hopefully restore the numbers of penguins.
