  • Experience real working sail boats
Full description
Depending on the wind, the trip is either a sail across Table Bay towards Milnerton Lighthouse and back to the Waterfront in a southeast wind (summer wind) or heading North East towards to Robben Island in a northwestern wind (winter wind).

The skippers pick the most comfortable course, normally a beam reach. And if you don’t know what a beam reach is, the cheerful crew members are happy to help you learn about sailing.

When it is not possible to sail comfortably and safely in the direction we need to proceed then we will use the Engine.
Whether on a sailing or motorized boat, the tour runs daily from 11:00 AM every hour until the late afternoon.

Variation to cruise (due to weather)

For all the vessels, when the seas are running too high or the wind is unpleasantly strong, instead of heading into Table Bay the destination is the Cape Town Harbor for a harbor day cruise or a harbor lights cruise. This safety feature is a perfect alternative, offering magical views of the harbor, Cape Town and Table Mountain and in the evening the lights of Cape Town and the harbor. In extreme conditions the skipper will take every aspect into account, and even stay dockside to ensure the safety of the passengers.
