Cape Town 3-Day Attraction:Cruise Charters Champagne,Aquila Safari &Wine Tasting

Our Most Popular Daily Scheduled Trip Cape Town has one of the best locations to see the Sunset from the Sea.

(A glass per guest, or a bottle for a couple.) A cash bar is available for other drink requirements, including soft drinks. Kids are welcome, and have a special price option, but remember it is an adult cruise so no alcohol served to minors! Cape Town weather can change 5 times a day, so our route from harbour is not always predictable; the two options below are merely a guide. But no matter which direction we take be assured of a spectacular cruise. SUNSET UNDER SAIL
