Locals can now visit the world’s longest ocean zipline right here in the Cape as Mossel Bay has just opened their latest 1.1km long attraction that runs above the sea for added awesomeness.

The zipline was approved for construction by the Mossel Bay Municipality in 2017 and will finally be open to the public in January 2020 but the official date has not yet been announced.

Delays in the opening of the line have been accredited to weather conditions, with the municipality saying they are waiting on better weather to finalise the opening date.

According to the Facebook page, visitors will be treated to amazing views of the cliffs and ocean in Mossel Bay while using the zipline at speeds of up to 80km per hour. Along with spectacular views, guests may even spot marine life too.

The new addition is located directly over the ocean and will run from the cliffs just below Point High School to the deck of the Shark Lab aquarium at the Point.

Only children over the age of six will be allowed to ride the zipline and pregnant women or people who weigh more than 120kg will not be able to use the zipline.

Tickets for the amazing experience will set you back R450 per person.
