Full description

Join a 90-minute sunset cruise from Cape Town and watch the Atlantic Ocean stretching away from the Table Mountain range as the sun goes down. Watch the sea while sipping on local sparkling wine. After the cruise, enjoy a 3-course meal at a sea-facing restaurant. The sailboats Esperance and Serenity One follow the wind for this cruise, and therefore the destination is dependent on the weather at the time of the cruise. Your captain will let you know before departure your expected direction, but typical Cape Town summer wind blows from the southeast.

First, leave the harbor and 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.

After building an appetite at sea, you then have a short stroll through the waterfront to the restaurant where you can enjoy your meal (each restaurant has a different menu).

Enjoy local fare at the City Grill or dine in the opulent setting of Sevruga, featuring exquisite panoramic views of the harbor and newly renovated interior with intimate seating. Both options will offer a perfect post-cruise culinary treat.

Possible Weather Variations: 

During inclement weather, when the seas are running too high, or the wind is too strong, the tour destination will be Cape Town Harbour instead of Table Bay. You will be able to enjoy a Harbour Lights Cruise.

This cruise offers a perfect alternative offering magical views of Table Mountain and the lights of Cape Town and the harbor in the evening. In extreme conditions, the skipper will take every aspect into account, and may cancel the tour to ensure the safety of the passengers.

It was quite a windy and bumpy ride due to that, however it was fun! loved the music that was playing, plus the champagne, and sunset of course. (#1 tip, take your motion sickness pills if you are prone to seasickness so your experience isn't ruined!). We ate at Sevruga for the 3-course meal part and that was great. The mussel starter was delicious, I immediately wanted more of that sauce. The sirloin for the main was underwhelming, next time I would opt for the gnocchi dish my friend had. The creme brule was stunning, whereas the chocolate dessert was quite overwhelming, there should have been more than one scoop of ice cream to balance it out. Overall, I had a fun time and would do it again.

This cruise exceeded my expectations. It was well organised and the staff were friendly and very helpful. Excellent service aboard. The bonus was the music on-board! All I can say is 'perfection!". Dinner afterwards at City Grill was also delicious. A good spread of options to choose from the set menu. A lovely establishment with a wonderful atmosphere and helpful staff. Definitely a great combo altogether.

A great experience on a catamaran manned by a wonderful crew. I liked the easy repertoire the rew had with the guest, the smaller vessel caters for a more inimate experience as opposed to a party boat feel. definitely recommend for someone who wants to enjoy a good mini sail with spectacular views.
