All aboard for a tour of Table Bay and the big blue beyond with this charter company.

Seeing the city from a boat really means you’ve ticked all the boxes and have ‘done’ Cape Town. This Waterfront-based company has a number of different charter offerings to suit different expectations and budgets - from sundowner booze cruises to day trips to Clifton (something I’d definitely recommend if it’s a still day) and even week-long sailing sorties should you be a keen sailor. Hop aboard Dawn for a quick n’ easy harbour cruise, sip Champagne on the Sea Princess or kick back and relax on the laidback wooden Spirit of Victoria - I went on a Clifton cruise on this 58ft schooner last summer and it was a real sailing experience.

Expert tips

If, like me, you feel seasick easily, don’t even think about going out when the notorious south easter wind is blowing.

Adrenaline junkies will love the JetBoat experience.
