1.5 Hour Sunset Champagne Cruise on Spirit of Victoria

Cape Town

Activity Description

The Sail boats SPIRIT OF VICTORIA and ESPERANCE follow the wind for this cruise. They do not offer a specific destination . Typically they motor out of the Harbour and sail across Table Bay towards Milnerton lighthouse, then return to the protection of Granger Bay in the lee of Table Mountain to watch the sun set, and then motor back to the Waterfront.
Cape Town has one of the best locations to see the Sunset from the Sea. Fabulous Table Mountain and city views while the sun dips into the sea at sunset. This is certainly a “must do” trip whilst visting Cape Town.

We serve a complimentary glass of sparkling wine. Cash Bar available. Kids are welcome, but remember it is an adult cruise.
We try to arrange the departure of our Sunset Champagne Cruise around the time of the Sunset. This cruise is designed to catch the Sunset and catches both daylight before and Nautical twilight and then darkness after.

The Amount of daylight / twilight / darkness therefore also changes with each cruise .We move the departure times in 30 minute increments 17h00,17h30,18h00,18h30 and 19h00 and then back downwards again as we move to midwinter.

Customer Reviews

The cruise was great, it was the first time for my 8 year old daughter and she had a blast. - Kufakunesu Mubvuma

It was cancelled on the morning we were due to go out. I was sent an email, but was flying to SA at the time, so when I landed I glanced at the email and saw in bold and big font 'confirmation' so I headed down with 5 friends for 6pm. On arrival, I was told to look again at the email where I saw, in tiny font, half way down the page, a brief line that it had been cancelled. I don't see how on earth i was supposed to see that. Bad communication. We were very disappointed. - Victoria

Had a wonderful trip, so lovely to be under sail and not engine! Great to have online booking made it easy for friends to join us. Beautiful sunset and friendly team on board. Would definitely go again! - Kirsten Tedder
