The harbour and its surroundings offer opportunities for learning for all ages and in many forms.
We welcome organised visits to the harbour from schools. Areas you may find interesting to include are West’s Whelks and our attractive picnic area.
If there is anything that we can do to make your visit to Whitstable Harbour even better, get in touch with our team at the harbour office.
The lifeboat answers approximately 60 to 70 calls per year, the majority being in the summer months.
All members of our crew are volunteers, with full time jobs elsewhere. The boathouse is normally unmanned, and the crew are summoned by pager, activated by the Coastguards.
If your school or youth group would like to visit the RNLI station, please contact Lifeboat Visits Officer David Hayward on 01227 264489 or at email@example.com.
We can also arrange talks for groups or clubs. Contact Geoff Parry on 01227 264756 for more information.
Find out about the Coast watch on Tankerton Slopes.
There are interpretation panels in many locations, providing information on topics such as the history of the harbour, wildlife, trade, and wind farms.
