Although the water from the Atlantic Ocean is freezing, it is enticing for children who are hardy and don’t seem to mind the cold during the warm summer months. Between June and November, southern right and humpback whales pass by the coastlines, enticing onlookers with their showy blows, leaps from the sea, and fluke splashes on the water’s surface. Dolphins can always be seen in the seas. This is one of the best places in the region for free diving because of the profusion of marine life. Those who visit Maiden’s Cave can use the public restrooms.
