Jutting out into the vast Atlantic Ocean, Cape Point is probably the most ecologically important tract of land in South Africa. Join the Simon’s Town Boat Company for an ocean adventure that hugs the rugged and dramatic coastline and provides a unique perspective of this precious attraction on the South Western corner of Africa.
Our Cape Point Boat Trip includes stopping at the famous penguin colony, Boulders Beach, where our seaward view of these charismatic birds offers an interesting perspective. The boat follows closely along the coast where cliffs drop precipitously into the sea. Each season has its own special quality and the type of wildlife sighting changes throughout the year. Whales, pods of migratory dolphins, endangered sea birds and even sharks inhabit this beautiful bay and our knowledgeable nature guides will keep a sharp eye out.
The highlight of this tour is rounding Cape Point. This legendary landmark with its two lighthouses (one a decommissioned failure and the other the most powerful light on the South African coastline) has a spectacular wild beauty best appreciated from the sea.
