About Cape Town
Located on the shore of Table Bay, the port city of Cape Town experiences warm summers and mild winters. Surrounded by busy harbours and beautiful scenery, the city is a boater’s delight. There are three natural harbors on the Cape Point Route. The top of the impressive Table Mountain offers some breathtaking view of the surrounding. Take a cable car to reach the mountaintop and enjoy the view of the busy city. Sit back and watch the boats as they leave the harbour and set sail for the Robben Island in Table Bay.
Boating in Cape Town
There are three natural harbours in Cape Town. These are located on the Cape Point Route. Countless boats head off to various locations from Simon’s Town, Hout Bay, and Kalk Bay. Cape Town offers a myriad of opportunities to explore your passion for boating. From the more relaxing options to the more adventurous alternatives, the city has it all. If you are here for a leisurely trip, make sure to visit the Cape Point. Take one of the boat cruises that depart from the Hour Bay Harbour. These will take you to the Duiker Island where you can watch the Cape Fur Seals from close quarters. You could also take cruises from the Simon’s Town to watch dolphins, whales, seals, and sharks.
A boat trip to the Seal Island located just 16 kilometers away from Simon’s Town is a great way to spend a few hours. More than 75,000 seals live here, giving the island its name. The presence of seals make the island a popular feeding ground for the Great White shark. For some more adventure and fun in the water, try snorkeling.
