    I know Ramsgate have some good puddles but I don't know if there's anything worth
    it

    What do you guys reckon?

    Pretty much anywhere with rocks will be suitable. Most of the KZN south coast and Transkei falls into this category.

    any particular places that also have some other forms of activity for the better half?
    and I see some members using scuba gear for collection purposes?
    Is this legal?

    Hi Renier - no. It is NOT legal in SA to collect ornamental live marine organisms, on SCUBA. Also - snorkel in the tidal pools. When I lived in Ramsgate (more than 20 years back), I caught my marine live-stock in the tidal pools.
