Two Oceans is proud to be contributing to the Cape’s fishing communities through getting involved building subsistence fishing skiffs
Seeing as the company’s focus is the sea and watercraft, it made sense to give back by assisting communities who rely on the sea for their livelihood. Two Oceans is involved through building subsistence fishing skiffs for the fishing co-operatives in fishing communities such as Stanford, Lamberts Bay and Honderklip Bay.
