Private Charter Visit Cape Point by Boat

Simon's Town

Activity Description

Enjoy the exclusivity of our whole boat to yourselves! This charter option allows you to book the whole boat, so you don’t have to share it with people you may not know.

Our Cape Point Scenic Boating Adventure is a 2-hour boat trip from Simonstown to Cape Point. Ideal for folk who don’t have all day to see the beautiful coastline of the Cape Point Nature Reserve! Dodge the heavy traffic!

Along the way, we will stop briefly at the Penguin Colony at Boulders Beach. A little while later, we pass by the Cape Fur Seal Colony at Partidge Point.

We pass closely by the Dias and Vasco Da Game Crosses at Buffels Bay. These crosses mark the place where these brave Portuguese explorers stopped during their expeditions in 1488 and 1497. The two crosses are cleverly lined up to point to a shallow reef in the middle of False Bay which would have been a danger to ships of old.

At Cape Point, there are some spectacular photo opportunities, against the backdrop of this famous landmark. Your Guide, Alan, will tell you the interesting story of why there are two lighthouses here, and also about the World War II Radar Listening Stations which can be seen on the hills above Cape Point.

On the return journey, we may be lucky and see a resident Brede’s Whale, or a pod of dolphins.

Our boat is a brand new 28’ GeCat, with ample shelter, comfortable seating and an onboard toilet. A walkaround configuration allows you to sit in front of the boat or the back, as you prefer. Limited numbers can also view the sights from our rooftop viewing platform, with seating for 3 passengers.
