Plett Ocean Festival Activities and Excursions

Fri 21 June - Sun 30 June 2024


Welcome to the Plett Ocean Festival—an immersive celebration of our deep connection to the sea and the myriad wonders it holds. Nestled along the shores of Plettenberg Bay, this festival is a testament to our commitment to preserving and appreciating the ocean that cradles our beautiful coastal community.

You're invited to dive into a week-long extravaganza that goes beyond mere enjoyment, but aims to foster a sense of stewardship for our oceans.  Partake in invigorating beach runs with the waves providing the soundtrack to your journey along the shore; join the reef and beach clean-ups where every piece of litter collected is a step towards ensuring cleaner, healthier oceans; Create captivating works of art during our eco-friendly art workshops and exhibitions—a reminder that creativity can be a powerful force for change.

Shoreline excursions and expos by various conservation NPOs provide a unique opportunity to deepen your understanding of marine life and the efforts taken to protect the magnificent creatures that inhabit the ocean. Engage with experts, learn about the delicate balance of our marine ecosystems, and discover how you can contribute to the ongoing conservation initiatives.

Families are at the heart of our festival, and we have curated events that cater to all ages. The NSRI open day offers an up-close look at the heroes who safeguard our shores, while rocky shore excursions promise exciting discoveries for curious minds of all sizes. 

Plett Ocean Festival is more than a gathering; it's a collective pledge to honor and preserve our oceans for generations to come. We extend our warmest welcome to everyone—join us in celebrating the Plett Ocean Festival, where the magic of the sea meets the spirit of community. Observe, Conserve, Preserve.
