Would just like to say Hello!... to everyone who is part of this Dover sea-sports centre/Sea Safari webcam community...although ive been an avid 'watcher' of this webcam amoungst others on the site for a fair while now,this one has made me want to join. Its a fanasic view and reminds me very closely of trips to France,particularly at the end of July when i go to Paris for the final of the Tour De France....passing so near to the centre-yet so far!! Its an 'easy' cam to watch,relaxing watching the ferries come into and leaving port along with the hustle and bustle on the roads behind it. Thanks once again,and please - keep up the great work,the centre itself looks most interesting. (Adrian,Lincoln)
Thanks for setting that up James. Have bunged you a few quid! If you don't get the full amount you need, I am ok with you using my contribution for good causes at the sea sports centre there.
Excellent idea James, hope it happens,I’ll do my bit,love this cam,look in every day,jolly good luck.
Hi everyone. It's fantastic to see our viewer numbers growing and reading your great comments. We're even meeting some of you that pop by to see our location which we never thought would happen.We would love to install a moving camera, but as a Community Interest Company setup to get people out enjoying the water, we couldn't divert funds for a new moving camera.Well you know what they say..."if you don't ask, you don't get!"We have set up a crowdfunding page to see if you would all chip in, raising money for a moving camera.Totally get why you wouldn't, as there much greater causes to support out there. But incase you have a few pennies to spare! :-)The page is with Justgiving and titled 'movingharbourcam'
What a lovely day,so nice to see people enjoying the beach and sea.
Oh! dear, that poor man ate his sandwich after the seagull had tried to swallow it. This is a fantastic camera.
I’m not sure Sean but I find that some disappear for a while then come back - perhaps a technical issue.
A lovely evening.
Amazing colour,should love to have a swim,peaceful.
0602.. What a beautiful sunrise
Surprised it’s quiet here today.
Hello again Simon. I took 2 photos you can look at. One was taken on April 19, 2019 (sunrise). Then the other was taken on April 11, 2019. At the moment, both of them appear on the top line. I especially like the sunrise one.
Been here since the 90's but thanks for the welcome! I usually tune in here in the morning Pacific time, so don't usually see the sunrises unless I play the time lapse.
Simon, to clarify: the west coast of the USA was 9:17 p.m. April 18.
Greetings Simon. I just submitted "Rose Sunrise" photo April 19, 2019, 5:17 a.m. Dover time, which was 9:17 p.m. west coast USA time. By the way, welcome to the USA!
Also tuning in from west coast USA. Born and raised in Dover, and enjoy being able to see part of my home town when I turn on the pc in the morning. Not so much left of the beach as when I was a kid back in the 60's and 70's. You could swim down at the East Cliff end (now part of the eastern docks), and could walk underneath the Prince of Wales pier. Can't believe that Dover Harbour Board have deprived everyone of access to this great pier with the new developments. I always said they wouldn't be happy until the whole harbor out to the breakwater was filled in, paved over, and made a lorry park. They are getting there slowly. Only a small piece of beach to swim from these days it seems.James - hope you can get that moving camera one of these days - would be good to be able to see the castle sometimes. Cheers.
