30 Minute Harbour Cruise - Dawn

Cape Town

Activity Description

While seals sun bath on the buoys, sea gulls patrol the harbour, keeping a watchful eye on the salty swell of the waves. There is no better vantage point to view the intricate workings of a harbour, than from our Dawn cruise boat. Our well-informed guides share their stories and knowledge of the Cape, while the boat peacefully bobs in front of a historically rich and ever busy port.

Dawn is a 40 seater harbour cruise boat offering half hour cruises as well as one-hour cruises around the Old Harbour and International Docks. Dawn is ideal for private functions and may be chartered privately for children’s parties, bachelor parties or tour groups.
