Sailing Sunsets on a Classic Schooner "Esperance"

Cape Town

Activity Description

Watching the sun set from the deck of a traditional schooner off the beautiful Cape coastline is an experience not to be missed – in fact it’s an adventure we know that you’ll want to repeat many times over. Waterfront Charters twin-masted schooner Esperance is the perfect vessel to host guests for this daily event: a classically built single-hulled boat that gives a true sailing experience as you cut gently through the swells under full sails, with fore and aft decks and a jutting bowsprit that all offer great viewing. After tacking along the Cape coastline viewing the panorama of sights, we drop anchor off Granger Bay to watch the sun set majestically over the Atlantic horizon. With a fully stocked cash bar aboard for refreshments, you can toast the occasion and each other. An Esperance Sunset Cruise is old-school sailing combined with the perfection of a stunning sunset, Cape scenery and great fun.

Places are limited, so booking ahead online is recommended: it’s a superb way to salute the transition between day and night in this beautiful part of the world

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 Lights Cruise; a perfect alternative offering magical views of Table Mountain and the lights of Cape Town and the harbour in the evening. In extreme conditions, the skipper will take every aspect into account, and even stay dockside to ensure the safety of the passengers .

  • 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.
