Waterfront Charters motor vessels take you from the historic V &A Waterfront area out to sea and cruises along the Atlantic coastline to Green Point Lighthouse and back to harbour. With spectacular mountain and city views, the cruise gives a perfect ocean view of Cape Town’s splendours. This One Hour Cruise operates daily with regular departures from Quay 5. A popular option with our Cruise and Dine lunch package, as well as many travel passes and Tour Operators. The weather option is a cruise into the International Harbour; when cruising the ocean is unpleasant, you will get a sailor’s view of our wonderful harbour with Table Mountain’s imposing presence still a thrilling factor. With a cocktail bar and great service, this is a trip not to be missed.
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
VARIATION TO CRUISE (DUE TO WEATHER)
For all the vessels, when the seas are running too high or the wind is unpleasantly strong, instead of heading into Table Bay the destination is the Cape Town Harbour for a Harbour Day Cruise or a Harbour Lights Cruise. This safety feature is a perfect alternative, offering magical views of the harbour, Cape Town and Table Mountain and in the evening the lights of Cape Town and the harbour. In extreme conditions, the skipper will take every aspect into account, and even stay dockside to ensure the safety of the passengers.
