The chic holiday resort town of Umhlanga on KwaZulu-Natal’s Sugar Coast is just 16km north of central Durban.
Umhlanga is all about beautiful beaches, gorgeous weather and making the most of the great outdoors, and a Boat Trip is the ultimate way to take it all in!
Boat trips from Umhlanga generally kick off with an exciting surf launch from Granny’s Pool, an area of water sheltered by two natural rock outcrops. With the warm waters of the Indian Ocean lapping at the hull, enjoy exploring the stunning coastline and viewing Umhlanga’s skyline and iconic lighthouse from a seafaring perspective. A fascinating array of sea birds and marine life including dolphins and whales may also be observed and close-encounters with some impressive ocean-going ships anchored close to shore are also common.
The hot summers and mild winters of the KwaZulu-Natal North Coast are an ideal recipe for ocean-based leisure activities with tropical summer days varying from 24-32°C and winter days a very pleasant average of 20°C. So, anytime of the year is ideal to splash out on a Boat Trip from Umhlanga!
