See Table Mountain from the incredible perspective that mariners have had for four hundred years! The Waterfront Charters 60 minute ‘Cruise under Sail’ across Table Bay is the perfect way to see Table Mountain and Cape Town’s Atlantic shoreline. Leaving from the V&A Waterfront, the routing is weather dependent; either to Milnerton and back if the south-easter is blowing, or towards Robben Island in north-westerly wind conditions. With either option, you’ll experience the excitement and thrills of sailing in Table Bay aboard one of Waterfront Charters beautiful yachts – with chilled refreshments aboard it’s the perfect way to spend an hour.
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 Day Cruise or a Harbour Lights Cruise. This safety feature is a perfect alternative, offering magical views of the harbour, Cape Town and Table Mountain and in the evening the lights of Cape Town and the harbour. 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.
