Sunset Cruise Waterfront Prices

There is nothing like seeing Table Mountain as the sun goes down, marveling at the glorious beaches that surround the city. If you don’t want to miss out on this sunset boat cruise opportunity, compare our different tours and prices and pick the best one for you.

Tigger 2 Royale

The Tigger 2 Royale is one of the most sought after fast cruisers in the entire harbor at the V&A Waterfront. It may be small, but it oozes luxury and is definitely one of the best ways to enjoy a romantic evening with a loved one.

The sunset cruise departs close to the clock tower at the Victoria & Alfred Waterfront. From there you will sail towards Clifton 4th Beach, or if the weather permits, towards Table Bay.

On the way back, that’s when the real beauty of the city comes to life. You can watch the sunset over the mother city in contrast with the bright city lights. Table Mountain will without a doubt look incredible. This is a romantic adventure you definitely can’t miss.

The trip is brilliant for families and friends looking for some relaxation time, and couples who want to enjoy a romantic evening together.

To top off a great day of adventure and sightseeing, relaxing on a catamaran as it floats along the beautiful Cape Town coast is the ultimate way to relax. Throw in the fact that you can watch a jaw-dropping sunset, you have the makings of a very memorable night.

Your cruise will start at the V&A Waterfront, where you will then sail down the Atlantic Seaboard, along with the southern coast peninsula. With the sea on one side, and Table Mountain on the other, be prepared to be mesmerized.

You can also enjoy amazing views of Cape Town Stadium, and depending on the night, it could be lit up. You can also view the city lights as the sun sets. Your cruise will end where it started, back at the amazing V&A Waterfront.

    It was a wonderful trip. We sailed relaxed into the sunset with some drinks and good music. The captain and the crew were like good old friends. We had a wonderful time and can really recommend this trip!
