Experience the stunning views that Cape Town has to offer on either a boat cruise from Clifton to Camps Bay or a tour around the waters of Hout Bay, with Ocean Image Boat Rentals & Charters. You will be treated to awe-inspiring landscapes of Table Mountain, the Twelve Apostles and the Mother City, as well as sightings of fantastic marine life occupying Cape Town’s coastline. Have your camera ready for friendly dolphins, African penguins, and cape fur seals; if you are lucky, you may even see a pod of majestic whales.

Grab some beers, wine and snacks, choose your music and hop onto a comfortable Ocean Image charter boat for an unforgettable trip.

Departing from Granger Bay next to the V&A Waterfront, the cruise will take you along the Atlantic coastline, passing Mouille Point, Three Anchor Bay, Sea Point, Bantry Bay, and the famous Clifton beaches.

Here, your trusty captain will drop anchor and you can sit back and enjoy the views and calming sounds of crashing waves with the sun in your face and a cold beer or glass of wine in hand.

Ocean Image Boat Rentals & Charters is the only boat company in Cape Town that offers a boat tour from Granger Bay to Hout Bay, making it a totally unique way to see Cape Town and her surroundings, and a chance to see the hidden beaches and untouched treasures of the Atlantic Ocean. You certainly won’t experience these views by road!

This stretch of the coastline has an abundance of marine life and is known to some locals as the whale highway, where Bryde Whales, Humpback and Southern Right Whales are frequently sighted.

After passing by the Cape Fur Seal islands for a look-see, you will arrive in Hout Bay. Here, you will hop off and can go enjoy lunch at one of the restaurants by the wharf, or browse the weekend markets filled with local food, craft beers, traditional culinary delights and lots more. This will be followed by a visit to the local fishing village, after which you will get back on board and enjoy a relaxing cruise back to Cape Town with your favourite tunes and a few more drinks before arriving back in Granger Bay Harbour. This is definitely a boat cruise not to be missed.
