Seal Island ECO cruise

The ‘real’ seal island is situated at the northern center of False Bay, 8 nautical miles from Simon’s Town.

Cape Point ECO cruise

This tour offers an ocean-based adventure along the majestic & unspoiled Cape Peninsula coastline, very much today as it was when first discovered by the early mariners.

Our Boats

Southern Right

She was custom built for us, to our own design and launched in late 2018. Our naval architect & South Africa’s foremost boat builder worked closely with the South African Maritime Safety Authority from planning through to completion & every stage of the process was inspected and approved by them.

Awesome

For smaller groups of up to 11 passengers, Awesome is great fun without compromising on safety.
She is ideal for super close-up viewing at Seal Island, photography & filming and can even enter a sea cave at Cape Point on calm days.

About False Bay

Situated at the the extreme south-west of Africa, False Bay is watched over by towering cliffs. The mouth of the bay is guarded by two grand peaks: Cape Hangklip in the East and Cape Point in the West. Popular myth suggests that this is where the Indian and Atlantic Oceans meet. The truth is that False Bay falls firmly within the Atlantic, but is it here that two great ocean currents mix: the cold, nutrient-rich Benguela that flows sluggishly along the West coast & the warm Aghulas to the East. This creates unique conditions where an abundant and diverse variety of marine life thrives.
