Full description

Join a sunset cruise from Cape Town and watch the Atlantic Ocean stretching away from the Table Mountain range as the sun goes down. Get a unique view of the coast from the sea while relaxing and sipping on local sparkling wine. After the cruise, enjoy a 3-course meal at a seafacing restaurant. The sailboats Esperance and Serenity One follow the wind for this cruise, and therefore the destination is dependent on the weather at the time of the cruise. Your captain will let you know before departure your expected direction, but typical Cape Town summer wind blows from the southeast.

First, leave the harbor and sail across Table Bay towards Milnerton Lighthouse, returning to the protection of the Granger Bay in the lee of Table Mountain to watch the sunset, and then motor back to the waterfront. This package is a combo offering the sunset champagne cruise and a meal ashore after the 90-minute cruise. This allows you the freedom to choose from 3 restaurants: the Meloncino Restaurant for Italian, the City Grill for local flavor, and the Greek Fisherman.

The cruise departure time changes with the seasons and can vary from 5:00 PM in winter to 7:00 PM in the summer. After the cruise, you then have a short stroll through the waterfront to the restaurant where you can enjoy your meal. The meal is a 3-course meal and each restaurant has a different menu.

Possible Weather Variations: 

During inclement weather, when the seas are running to high, or the wind is too strong, the tour destination will be Cape Town Harbour instead of Table Bay. Guests will be able to enjoy a Harbour Lights Cruise; a perfect alternative offering magical views of Table Mountain and the lights of Cape Town and the harbor in the evening. In extreme conditions, the skipper will take every aspect into account, and may cancel the tour to ensure the safety of the passengers.

It was a magical experience. The views on the boat was breathtaking! Really enjoyed the atmosphere on the boat. Our 3-course dinner at Melonchino was excellent. The food was tasty and arrived quickly. Shaun, our waiter, was attentive and highly efficient. Will definitely be going back there! We will be recommending this experience to everyone!

For the price point, this is a great activity! The sunset cruise was just incredible. There was lots of sparkling rose (and other beverages, for a fee) and we saw the most beautiful sunset across the Cape Town skyline. After the cruise, we had dinner at Melancino on the waterfront. The food was not bad, especially for the low price. However given all the incredible restaurants on the waterfront, and the limited prix fixe menu we were offered at Melancino, I would recommend just doing the sunset cruise and then going to the restaurant of your choice for dinner!
