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’ll 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 bathed in pink light. This is a romantic adventure you definitely can’t miss.

Sunset Yacht Cruise, Cape Town

This Champagne sunset cruise in Cape Town is a great way to experience the waters around the city, whether you are with family, friends, at an office party, or with a loved one. The private charter ensures a cozy and private affair.

Starting and ending at the V&A Waterfront, you can spend your day exploring one of the most popular and famous spots in the whole city, have some dinner or pre-drinks, before heading to the yacht for your Cape Town cruise.

We also recommend an exclusive sunset yacht cruise in Cape Town for only one couple. This option is great for special romantic birthday celebrations or proposals.

This tour is a 3-hour tour and includes a 3-course dinner and some bubbly! Personally, we think its the best boat cruise in Cape Town options.

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 catamaran cruise in Cape Town 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!

    Magnificent! Such a good experience for a 40th! It was an absolute perfect experience. We were so blessed with perfect weather! Catered for everyone: one could take part in the dancing inside or just enjoy the spectacular view outside. Cape Town is a beautiful city. Had lots of fun on the boat with Dutch guests as well. Safety briefing before was good. Our grandchildren or 7 and 9 enjoyed themselves as well. Thanks for a super experience.

    No doubt one of the best decisions I took on the trip I wanted to surprise my boyfriend for our anniversary in CPT and I got the cruise with the dinner at CityGrill. The cruise was magnificent, the view, the environment, the staff, everything was perfect!! We even saw a whale!!!! And the dinner was awesome, the 3 courses were to be chosen from a limited menu, EVERYTHING WAS DELICIOUS!! Thanks
