Boat Charters in Simon's Town is definitely a fun thing to do when you visit Cape Town.
Simon’s town sits in a sheltered corner of False Bay. So much more sheltered than the port of Cape Town that the Dutch used it in the 1600’s as an overwintering harbour for their ships and now Simon’s Town has become the gateway for boat trips exploring False Bay.
A boat charter from Simon’s Town will bring the rich maritime history (which is the founding story of Cape Town itself) and bountiful marine life together in one exciting boat trip and is one of the best ways to appreciate the magnitude of Cape Peninsula’s stunning scenery.
This is the bay of the legendary great white shark. It is home to 7500 Cape fur seals, who live on a rocky Island surrounded by water and predators. It is where, in 1982, much to the surprise of the locals that lived there, a couple of almost extinct African penguins waddled up the beach, decided to stay and spawned a colony of 3000 birds. False Bay is also the spring residency of southern right and humpback whales. A boat charter with one of our professional and highly experienced operators will ensure you get to enjoy the full wonder of this remarkable place.
