1.5 Hour Sunset Champagne Cruise on Spirit of Victoria

Cape Town

Activity Description

The Sail boat SPIRIT OF VICTORIA follows 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 visiting Cape Town.

We serve 2 complimentary glasses of Sparkling Wine per person. A Cash Bar is available.
Kids are welcome, but remember this 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

Always a great way to show off the city to friends from abroad! - Mark Jardine

I had a great experience, however I was told by the paying office that I was able to bring my own bottle of wine ( which I then did) only to be told that there is a corkage fee??? I was surprised and told him that I wasn't informed of this and he should wave it, I told him its only a bottle of red wine? and he insisted that I should pay R50.00??? and I told him that's what the bottle of wine cost me??? so because of that I will definitely not be back....thanks again - Robin Phelps

For the most part, we enjoyed the sunset cruise. The captain(?) was a bit reckless in his attempt to give his passengers a thrill by raising the sails. It appeared that he did not anticipate that the wind would pick up like it did, causing the boat to heel more than he thought it would and we began to take on water over the gunnels. Once the sails were lowered, and we reached calmer waters, the ride was lovely. The sunset was spectacular! It was easy to book online. - Elena Bonifacio

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
