Scenic Boat Cruises: Explore South Africa’s Coastlines

South Africa’s sunny climate and vast coastline that stretches from northern Kwazulu Natal all the way to the West Coast lends itself to amazing local cruising and boat tours.

There’s no reason to be bored, whether you live in SA or you’re visiting our country for a short period of time. Apart from our amazing coastline, the country features many inland water bodies, such as the popular Hartbeespoort Dam and the Vaal River and dam, each offering their own brand of water based adventure or relaxation.

Few things are as romantic as a sunset cruise…

When looking for different things to do with your love, book a champagne cruise and or a cruise and dinner in Cape Town. If luxury cruises are what you’re after, don’t miss the Table Bay Cruise and Royal High Tea for Two at the Silo Hotel. Of course, one of the most popular sunset cruises in Cape Town is the Serenity One cruise that includes picnic on the water for two. Operating from the V&A Waterfront, the cruise heads towards Clifton Beach, offering spectacular views as you indulge in a Peckish Picnic and a picnic cooler which you get to keep.

If you’re in Kwazulu Natal –

impress someone special with a scenic coastal cruise and fine dining at the Oyster Box Hotel or opt for a romantic coastal cruise followed by a banquet on a blanket.

How about a  scenic inland cruise?

Enjoy a breakfast brunch on the Dam, a champagne sunset snack cruise and overnight for two, and Vaal River fishing cruise for you and four buddies.

With so many options to offer, we’d be remiss not to invite you to check out our listing of all the amazing cruises South Africa has to offer. The options include houseboat rentals, helicopter and cruise combinations, dining cruises, spa and cruise packages, picnics and much, much more. The Sunday cruises are especially popular, as they take care of the day’s meal and entertainment, so be sure to book well in advance!
