Champagne Cruise (Pre-Sunset)

  • About 2 hours


The Champagne Cruise is our second last Cruise of the day and returns to Harbour prior to the Sunset Champagne Cruise.

These pre-sunset Champagne Cruises are extremely popular as pre-dinner cruises. They are ideal for families who find the regular Sunset Champagne Cruise too late. Due to the fact that the Sunset Champagne Cruise departure times vary according to the season, the pre-sunset Champagne Cruises also have a variable departure time. Please check the schedule to ensure you are aboard before departure time.


Toast Table Mountain and the sunset from the deck of a choice of vessels with a complimentary glass of local sparkling wine for adult guests (a glass per adult guest). A cash bar is available for other drink requirements, including soft drinks. Kids are welcome and have special pricing options. Cape Town weather can change five times a day, so our sailing route from the harbour is not always predictable. But no matter which direction we take, be assured of a spectacular cruise that gets you back to the V&A Waterfront in time for evening festivities.

Jeff was AWESOME! Very friendly and accommodating. He takes amazing pictures! Did I mention the free sparkling wine or juice? I felt like I was in a titanic before it sank, obviously 🙄 lol.

Great experience. Amazing crew. Good music!!!

Our cruise was first class from start to an extended end. Booking online was convenient and easy and we were informed by WhatsApp where to go and what to do. The crew were friendly and created a good vibe. Kudos to the captain who changed course to allow us to get close up, and without frightening, to a whale family that were spotted out in the bay. Everyone around us enjoyed this unexpected sight. The return to harbour, under a full moon, felt like it was with close friends A pleasant surprise was to get a refund as promised for a young passenger that we had paid full fare for, a few days after the cruise.

The lack of organization is a poor start to the entire experience.
You are told to queue at 4:15 for boarding, but there is no staff present to regulate the queue, so regardless of how punctual you are, you are crushed in a mass when boarding begins.
The crew are unapologetic, to the point of being rude.
Although the boat is large in appearance there is limited seating outside of the enclosed cabin. There are more people who want to sit in the open air than the boat can accommodate.
Despite being first in the queue, in the ensuing crush, we were told there is no longer space on the upper deck.
Too bad - is the attitude.
If we wanted to sit outside of the cabin, we were told to sit at the back of the boat in front of the engines.
Only when we were overwhelmed by engine fumes, then suddenly, "space" became available on the upper deck and we were allowed up.
If you don't mind standing for the hour trip, with no social distancing, blaring music and smoke (engine and cigarette) then this is your booze cruise.
If you are hoping for serene appreciation of nature and the ocean, it is not.
I would not recommend it to my friends and did not enjoy the interaction with the crew or the overall experience.

This was great experience. We did ocean safari. Always ask for deal got good savings. Crew was great!

They lied about being able to accommodate us and made us wait in the sun and told us they can't refund us. Staff was extremely rude.

I will not recommend this service.
