30 Minute Harbour Cruise

Cape Town

Activity Description

DAWN is a 10m Catamaran Harbour ferry that offers unique insight into the historic Old Harbour Area of the V&A Waterfront, as well as cruises into the International Harbour area.
The 44 passenger seats now all face forward and the new clear Perspex roof is supported by a sturdy stainless steel frame. With the clear roof we can get really close up and under the bows and sterns of the Vessels in the Old Harbour, as well as within a safe distance of the Cape Fur Seals sitting on the fenders scattered around the Harbour.

The Skipper and crew now sit at the stern of the DAWN allowing all passengers uninterrupted views over the bow. 360 degree Views are ensured for all passengers.

This first on a vessel in the V&A Waterfront and will ensure that the highest standard on commentary is achievable for tour groups, and of course we also carry a SAMSA Qualified Skipper and Crew to assist with the guided tours and add local charm.
