What Kind of Vessel is the Tigger 2 Royale?
The Tigger 2 Royale is a 55-foot luxury power catamaran and is currently considered the flagship of the charter industry. The vessel is powered by two 530 hp, inboard, turbo-charged diesel engines and reaches a top speed of 22 knots. The cruising speed, however, is a pleasant 12 to 16 knots, a perfect pace to catch the gentle breeze and enjoy the view. The vessel can accommodate up to 70 guests, catering for individuals, corporates, and special events. There are also various onboard facilities, such as the main dining area with a bar, as well as an upper chill lounge.
What Do the Sunset Cruises Entail?
Boarding our Tigger 2 Royale fast cruiser, you will be met with a glass of sparkling wine and ushered onto the deck or chill lounge, where you can sit back and enjoy the ride. The cruise travels to Clifton 4th Beach, or based on different weather, Table Bay Blaauwberg and then passing by Robben Island.
How Long are the Sunset Cruises?
Our non-private sunset boat cruises last approximately one and a half hours, but you want to ensure that you arrive a few minutes early to avoid being late. The vessel does feature facilities for both ladies and gentlemen, so no emergency stops are needed.
Is There a Dress Code?
There is no specific dress code, and passengers are free to dress comfortably to ensure they have a pleasant trip. As the sun sets, the weather may cool and the wind may pick up, however, so it is important to bring along something warm in case it becomes too chilly for you.
Should I Prepare in Any Way?
If you are prone to motion sickness or want to prepare for the possibility that you feel unwell, you can speak to your doctor about medication that will help you. If you tend to get peckish, you can eat a light snack beforehand to keep you sated until the cruise is over. Many passengers also bring a camera along to take some snapshots of this once-in-a-lifetime Cape Town experience.
