More about Scenic Marine Eco-Tours

False Bay has some beautiful sights, which are best viewed from a boat. Thousands of people visit the most South Westerly tip of Africa each year, but very few have the chance to experience it from the sea!

Sir Francis Drake described Cape Point as the most beautiful place he had ever visited! During our scenic marine eco-tours, we can be sure of seeing a variety of thrilling vistas, which could include dramatic sea cliffs, islands, and rocks covered in seals or cormorants, huge numbers of wild birds, and exciting sights of seals, dolphins, whales, and penguins playing and hunting in the water.

You may customize your trip to suit your group, timing, and preferences, and take into account the seasons and recent wildlife sightings. Your Guide, Alan, will be happy to advise you on a suitable itinerary.

Trip lengths may vary from 2 to 4 hours, according to your preferences.

Our boat is a brand new 28’ GeCat, with ample shelter, comfortable seating and an onboard toilet. A walkaround configuration allows you to sit in front of the boat or the back, as you prefer. Limited numbers can also view the sights from our rooftop viewing platform, with seating for 3 passengers.

MINIMUM REQUIRED PASSENGERS Please note that we require a minimum of 5 guests to go out on this charter. If this number is not reached, the charter will have to be re-scheduled. We will get in contact with you to reschedule the charter to a convenient time, or to arrange for a refund.
