Sunset Boat Cruises – a “Must Do” for You Too
There are few activities that could possibly be more awe inspiring or romantic than a sunset boat cruise. It’s the stuff of dreams, particularly if this mini ocean voyage takes place along one of the most beautiful, picturesque coastlines in the world – South Africa’s Cape coast.
The appeal of such a sunset boat cruise is greatly enhanced when it takes you from the iconic V&A Waterfront to another Cape feature that’s known worldwide for its beauty and exclusivity – 4th Beach in Clifton – home and playground of the wealthy.
If you know anything about Cape Town, you’ll be aware of Clifton and its 4th Beach, the most sought-after of the four individual beaches that are separated from one another by massive boulders and outcrops of rocks. This time around, however, from aboard a luxurious boat, you’ll have a view with a difference – one that eludes many people – that is, until relatively recently.
Boat Cruise Charters
Since our founding in 1996, Tigger 2, our company, has been successfully operating various charter cruises from our base in Table Bay, at the exclusive, popular V&A Waterfront. Our latest vessel is the Tigger 2 Royal, which we launched in 2008. This means that our sunset and other cruises enable affluent celebs as well as the average Joe on a budget to enjoy a delightfully scenic sunset boat cruise in absolute luxury, aboard the Tigger 2 Royale.
Our sunset charter options allow for a range of superb services and budgets. We sail from the bay to Clifton’s fabulous Blue Flag 4th Beach and back again, taking in the sun setting gently over the Atlantic Ocean, and then docking at the V&A Waterfront again as night is about to fall and the Mother City’s twinkling lights are switched on to welcome our return.
Sunset Boat Cruise Options
Tigger 2 cruises may be booked on a non-private or private basis, the former being the most affordable of the two options. The streamlined 55-foot boat can accommodate up to 65 people for a sunset cruise without a sit-down meal service, or up to 39 people, lunch and/or dinner included.
- Non-private charter – Being non-private, you can look forward to meeting and socialising with new friends on board, if you wish.
- Private charter – the crème de la crème of sunset boat cruises on offer by Tigger 2.
Our Sunset Boat Cruise
It’s not surprising that this cruise is our most popular boat trip, since sunset is the traditional time to shake off the day’s demands, relax with a sundowner, and put the day to rest before doing whatever pleases you during the evening.
Sunset is also a particularly romantic time of day, so our superb sunset boat cruise is the perfect way to spoil your beloved – just another unique way of saying “I love you”, especially in February, the month of love.
Upon boarding at the V&A Waterfront, you’ll be warmly welcomed with a glass of well-chilled Méthode Cap Classique, as we depart for our coastal cruise to Clifton. Additional drinks are available from our full cash bar. Snacks may be purchased on board.
When Weather isn’t Kind
Since the days of the early sailing vessels which rounded the Cape coast and the Cape of Storms en route to the East to trade, the weather and seas in our fairest Cape can be unpredictable. Clients should keep in mind that our sunset boat cruise’s route is as stated, weather permitting, the one factor that we cannot control.
Should inclement weather and rough seas prevent Tigger 2 Royale from embarking on the coastal route to Clifton, or cruising around the Bay, you may select an alternative date for your boat cruise. Whatever the case may be, be sure to join us on a sensational sunset boat cruise aboard Tigger 2 Royale.
