Our most popular cruise! Enjoy a 1.5-hour Sunset Cruise with 2 glasses of bubbly while toasting to the setting sun


Our Most Popular Daily Scheduled Trip!
Cape Town has one of the best locations to see the Sunset from the Sea. With the Atlantic Ocean stretching away from the majestic Table Mountain range, this is certainly a ‘must-do’ cruise for locals and tourists alike. Toast the setting sun from the deck of one of the amazing range of vessels.

A complimentary glass of local sparkling wine (two glasses per guest, or a bottle for a couple) will be served, and the bar will be open for all other drinks at additional cost for the duration of the cruise. Toast to the setting sun once more!

Kids are welcome and have a special price option.

Cape Town weather can change five times a day, so our route from the harbour is not always predictable; the two options below are merely a guide. But no matter which direction we take be assured of a spectacular cruise.

The sailboats Esperance and Serenity One follow the wind for this cruise. They do not offer a specific destination for this reason; you will be advised before departure as to the expected direction. The typical Cape Town summer wind blows from the south-east; the boats use the motors to leave the harbour and then they sail across Table Bay towards Milnerton lighthouse, returning to the protection of Granger Bay in the lee of Table Mountain to watch the sunset, and then motor back to the Waterfront.

In the winter months with the north-wester prevalent, the direction taken will be toward the Clifton Coastline, or the Robben Island Coastline, also returning to Granger Bay. The wind and sea conditions change daily so the routing and style of the trip also change to meet the conditions; the skipper and crew will give you the best possible adventure.

The Motor Vessels Sea Princess and Southern Cross follow a different route from the sailing boats. As they are not dependent on the wind they offer a destination and normally cruise slowly along the Atlantic seaboard towards Clifton beach and then return.

Highlights include:
  • 1.5-hour Sunset Cruise
  • Enjoy 2 glasses of bubbly while toasting to the setting sun

Weather: In the unlikely event that the primary boat for this cruise is unavailable due to unforeseen circumstances, the operator reserves the right to utilize an alternative vessel for this experience. Be assured that the operator will always make every possible effort to ensure that the advertised vessel is available. Some Cruises do not have a dedicated boat for the cruise and rely on a pool of available vessels to cover fluctuations in weather, seasonal passenger numbers, and planned maintenance.

Do take medication beforehand if you have previously experienced motion sickness.

Due to the fact that the Sunset Champagne Cruise departure times vary according to the season, these pre-sunset Champagne Cruises also have a variable departure time. Please check the schedule to ensure you are aboard before departure time.

Please make sure that you arrive at the activity location at least 30min before the scheduled cruise departure to collect your boarding pass(es).
Please DO NOT go directly to the boat as the skipper will not allow you onboard without the boarding pass that must be collected at the front office.

The Sunset Champagne Cruise DAILY departure times are dependant on the constantly changing time of the actual sunset. The time changes in the schedule below are valid for the period between changes: e.g. at 18h15 for the days between the 18th October and the 12th November.
