Tour Description
Set sail on your 3 hour Bay private cruise onboard the Explore Catamaran toward destinations such as Robben Island, Blouberg Beaches or Clifton Beaches depending on weather and wind direction.
Capacity
35 passengers (25 - 30 recommended for space & comfort)
Duration
3 hours
Weather
The duration and course of the cruise are subject to weather conditions and the skipper's discretion. Your safety, along with the safety of your guests, is our utmost priority.
What to Wear
Sunglasses, hats, a jersey or windbreaker as well as non-deck marking shoes (eg trainers/deck shoes, no black soles) is recommended.
Bar
For your convenience, an onboard cash or card bar is available. However, if you prefer to bring your own drinks, and not to use the onboard bar at all, a corkage fee will apply. The fee for a 2-hour period is R2,000, with an additional charge of R1,000 per hour thereafter. It is essential that you bring your own containers and ice to ensure your drinks remain chilled throughout the trip. If you want to use the onboard and only bring a few bottles, please note that a corkage fee of R50 per bottle applies to wine and sparkling wine, while hard liquor incurs a corkage fee of R100 per bottle. Kindly be aware that ciders, beers, and soft drinks are not permitted.
Catering
Menu options must be arranged in advance for your convenience during the charter. Gas BBQ/Braai facilities are available for an additional usage fee of R500. If you require a designated Braaimaster, a fee of R500 will apply. Please note that the crew members are unable to perform the braai. You are more than welcome to bring your own food and snacks. However, please be aware that cutlery, crockery, and plates are not provided, so we kindly request that you bring your own.
DJ / Entertainer
Feel free to bring your own music and enjoy the onboard sound system, equipped with USB, Bluetooth, or AUX connection (please bring your own AUX cable). For those seeking additional bass and volume for their event, a JBL Bluetooth speaker can be rented for a fee of R500. If you're interested in having a DJ for your event, we have a list of talented DJs available for your selection. Additionally, we can provide details of Cape Town-based singers/entertainers upon request. You have the option to bring your own DJ; however, they will be responsible for bringing their own equipment and speakers. Please note that the use of the generator is available at an additional fee of R500, as there is no power source at sea.
Additional Activities
Add on some water sport activities such as jet skis, 3-man Super Tube (couch) or inflatable SUP boards & paddle.
Route
Generally the most scenic route is cruising from Granger Bay, past the famous Light House, past Sea Point and then heading up to Clifton Beach with spectacular views of Table Mountain and the Twelve Apostles Mountain range during the entire trip. However the entire Table Bay and surrounding areas may be utilised depending on the weather and sea conditions for the trip. The Skipper / Captain will make the final call.
