Umhlanga Ocean Charters offers unforgettable scenic Boat Trips just 16km from central Durban in the popular seaside resort town of Umhlanga.

With over 200,000 launches under his belt, owner-operator Zaan Grobler considers safety a top priority and has acquired an in-depth knowledge of the ocean over the past 15 years. Our vessel, a 7.2 metre hard-nose rubber duck, is serviced and maintained regularly and is driven by two powerful Yamaha outboard motors.

Our 1 and 2 hour boat trips offer a scenic perspective of the coast and the Umhlanga skyline, an opportunity to view a range of sea birds and marine life such as dolphins and whales, and an educational insight into the ocean and its inhabitants. Most marine mammal activity is encountered close to shore, near the shark nets and in the vicinity of nearby anchored ships.

Our vessel seats 11 passengers and, due to reasons of safety, our youngest passengers need to be at least 5 years of age. After a safety briefing and allocation of life jackets, experience the excitement of a surf launch from Granny’s Pool, an area of water sheltered by two natural rock outcrops.

For a healthy dose of fresh sea air and the ultimate in personal attention, seafaring experience and knowledge, book a boat trip with Umhlanga Ocean Charters today!
