A trip to Cape Town is not complete without a tranquil boat cruise. The perfect romantic treat for someone special and/or the whole family.
Cape Town is well-known for its picturesque sunsets accompanied by beautiful cloud formations. The best location to watch the sun sink into the ocean is aboard one of our magnificent vessels. With 360 degrees of unobstructed scenery, the wind in your hair, the smell of the ocean and a time away from real-life – All bundled into a single trip which makes sea rides so decidedly appealing.
About Waterfront Boat Tours
Waterfront Boat Tours (A sister company of Sport Helicopters) is the newest boat touring company offering 5-star rated harbour cruises, catamaran bay cruises and sunset cruises from the V&A Waterfront. Waterfront Boat Tours started operating from the 1st of November 2021 from shop 6, Quay 5, Dock Road, V&A Waterfront. The offices use to be a helicopter tour agency called Waterfront Helicopter Tours and we decided to expand our product offering. We have launched brand-new state-of-the-art boats in November and December 2021. A double-decker 47ft Magnus power catamaran (harbour boat) called “Une Belle Vie” and a beautiful 53ft catamaran yacht called “A Beautiful Life”. Both boats operate daily from the V&A Waterfront, offering scheduled cruises from 11:00 – 17:00 and sunset cruises from 18:00.
All boat cruises depart from the docks in front of the legendary Quay 4 tavern. Occasionally our skippers will point out interesting points of interest and marine wildlife along the way. Trying to get as close as it is safe to do so.
