Sunset Cruise from Table Bay

The view of Table Mountain and the waterfront from the perch of a sunset cruise vessel.

Watch the sun sink away beyond the Atlantic on a sunset cruise in Table Bay.

A luxury South Africa tour in the Cape Town region deserves an idyllic round-off, and there is no occasion quite as romantic as a sunset cruise from Table Bay. As the sun begins its descent beyond the seemingly endless horizon of the Atlantic, a warm red glow spills onto the water and the sandstone folds of Table Mountain, setting the world afire.

Most cruises depart from the Victoria & Alfred Waterfront, with a range of vessels to choose from. For something different, opt for a trip on the Jolly Roger – the harbor’s resident pirate ship! Alternatively, catamarans, old school sailboats, yachts and powerboats are also anchored in the harbor.

Marine wildlife such as Cape fur seals and dolphins are frequently spotted on boat cruises in the bay, as well as the occasional shark. Many sunset cruises from Table Bay also offer refreshments onboard – be sure to check before your departure. The spectacular views may go down even better with a glass of champagne – a perfect end to the day.
