Description

Our Most Popular Daily Scheduled Trip

Cape Town has one of the best locations to see the Sunset from the Sea. With the Atlantic Ocean stretching away from the majestic Table Mountain range, this is certainly a ‘must do’ cruise for locals and tourists alike.  Toast the setting sun from the deck of one of Waterfront Charters amazing range of vessels.

A complimentary glass of local sparkling wine (two glasses per guest, or a bottle for a couple) will be served, and the bar will be open for all other drinks for the duration of the cruise. Toast to the setting sun once more!

Kids are welcome, and have a special price option. Cape Town weather can change five times a day, so our route from the harbour is not always predictable; the two options below are merely a guide. But no matter which direction we take be assured of a spectacular cruise.

SUNSET UNDER SAIL

The sailboats Esperance and Serenity One follow the wind for this cruise. They do not offer a specific destination for this reason; you will be advised before departure as to the expected direction. The typical Cape Town summer wind blows from the south-east; the boats use the motors to leave the harbour and then they sail across Table Bay towards Milnerton lighthouse, returning to the protection of Granger Bay in the lee of Table Mountain to watch the sunset, and then motor back to the Waterfront.

In the winter months with the northwester prevalent, the direction taken will be toward the Clifton Coastline, or the Robben Island Coastline, also returning to Granger Bay. The wind and sea conditions change daily so the routing and style of the trip also change to meet the conditions; the skipper and crew will give you the best possible adventure.

SUNSET ON A MOTOR VESSEL

The Motor Vessels  Sea Princess and Southern Cross follow a different route to the sailing boats. As they are not dependant on the wind they offer a destination and normally cruise slowly along the Atlantic seaboard towards Clifton beach and then return. [/responsivevoice]

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 Harbour for a Harbour Lights Cruise; a perfect alternative offering magical views of Table Mountain and the lights of Cape Town and the harbour in the evening. In extreme conditions, the skipper will take every aspect into account, and even stay dockside  to ensure the safety of the passengers .

* In the unlikely event that the primary boat for this cruise is unavailable due to unforeseen circumstances, we reserve the right to utilize an alternative vessel for this experience. Be assured that Waterfront Charters will always make every possible effort to ensure that the advertised vessel is available. Some Cruises do not have a dedicated boat for the cruise and rely on a pool of available vessels at Waterfront Charters to cover fluctuations in weather, seasonal passenger numbers and planned maintenance.

  1. Disappointing Sunset Champagne Cruise

    peterraffin

    Waterfront Charters paints a Great Picture for their Sunset Champagne Cruise. Our experience was the complete opposite.
    Our booking was made three weeks ago and it was impossible to know what the weather conditions were going to be. On the day of our Cruise it was Raining, Overcast and Windy. When we phoned to change our booking we were told that because we booked through an agency we could not change our booking and the skipper was to decide whether we were to go out or not. As we were a large party of Adults and Children we did not want to lose our money. We arrived at the Waterfront in very bad weather conditions to be told that we were going out. There was certainly no Sunset to be seen. The sea was rough and the wind was howling. We had four children on board under the age of eleven. To say that they were unhappy is an understatement. Not only did they endure very bad weather conditions, but loud music and bad behaved patrons drinking too much champagne. This is definitely not a Family Cruise and should not be marketed as such.
