 Fisherman and Fishmarket

Over the years Paternoster has remained a fishing village and is well known for its crayfish and other seafood delights. Fishermen still ply their trade from these shores and it is always great fun to watch the colourful traditional boats coming in. When the fishing boats return to the beach, you can buy hotnosvis and harders directly from these fishermen. They will even remove the scales.

The Lisboa wrecked on Soldiers Reef
Visit the Graveyard of the ships. The coast is littered with the wrecks of the ships that have sunk. Local diving will take you on a wreck dive and give you the history of each wreck on our coast. The Lisboa was a Portuguese twin screw steel steamship, built in 1910 in Glasgow and displacing 7459 tons. On 23 October 1910, while en route from Lobito, in Angola, to Cape Town and Maputo (Lourenço Marques), with 250 passengers and 50 crew aboard and carrying a cargo which included bulls and olive oil, the Lisboa ran aground on Soldiers Reef near Paternoster. The wreck of the Lisboa is particularly interesting because it was the first occasion on the South African coast on which radio telegraphy was used to summon help by a ship in distress.
