Waterfront Charters charge a 100% cancellation fee on all confirmed or pre-paid bookings cancelled within 24 hours of the scheduled departure time. This is in line with industry practice and means that no refund will be received for late cancellations, and the voucher or order will be considered redeemed towards that scheduled cruise. A non-arrival for a scheduled cruise will also be treated as a “No-show” with the 100% cancellation fee applied. A request to reschedule the cruise within the 24 hours of the scheduled departure time will also be seen as a cancellation within the 24 hour period. Any cruise that is rescheduled during this 24 hour cancellation period will be charged at the regular ticket price and be deemed a new booking.
Clients may receive a full refund if the booking is cancelled in writing more than 24 hours from the scheduled departure time of the booked cruise. The refund request must be submitted in writing to [email protected] and will be subject to the refund policy detailed in the clause below
A late afternoon cruise that allows guests to be back at the V&A Waterfront in time for evening adventures. With the bubbles of sparkling wine and superb views of the coastline from the Atlantic, it’s the perfect precursor to evening fun or the perfect ending to a busy day.
The Champagne Cruise is our second last Cruise of the day and returns to Harbour prior to the Sunset Champagne Cruise.
These pre-sunset Champagne Cruises are extremely popular as pre-dinner cruises. They are ideal for families who find the regular Sunset Champagne Cruise too late. Due to the fact that the Sunset Champagne Cruise departure times vary according to the season, the pre-sunset Champagne Cruises also have a variable departure time. Please check the schedule to ensure you are aboard before departure time.
Toast Table Mountain and the sunset from the deck of a choice of vessels with a complimentary glass of local sparkling wine for adult guests (a glass per adult guest). A cash bar is available for other drink requirements, including soft drinks. Kids are welcome and have special pricing options. Cape Town weather can change five times a day, so our sailing route from the harbour is not always predictable. But no matter which direction we take, be assured of a spectacular cruise that gets you back to the V&A Waterfront in time for evening festivities.
The Cruise Departure Times change with the seasons. Consult our website for times. Both Cruises have various routing options taking into account different weather and can include a cruise across
Table Bay to Sea Point or into the expansive Historic Harbour and Royal Yacht Club.
* In the unlikely event that the primary boat for this cruise is unavailable due to unforeseen circumstances, we reserve the right to utilize an alternative vessel for this experience. Be assured that Waterfront Charters 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 at Waterfront Charters to cover fluctuations in weather, seasonal passenger numbers and planned maintenance.
