Boat Trips in Cape Town

Cape Town owes its existence to its maritime tradition and the city is surrounded by ocean.

So it makes sense to do at least one boat trip. Choose between a whole lot of trips leaving from the V&A Waterfront including some huge boats that can take more than 100 passengers, or opt for the less hectic, more laid back harbour at Simons Town, where you can go out to see seals, dolphins, whales and maybe even sharks. Penguins are virtually guaranteed, and these incredibly cute birds are bound to bring a smile to your face.

Some of the trips include snacks and cocktails so make sure you know what you’re booking and don’t turn up hungry for a boat trip that doesn’t offer food and drink.
