Cape Town  -  Sea Point Cruise

Sea Point Cruise in Photos

The cruise aboard the Sea Princess leaves from the V & A Waterfront in Cape Town

After slipping anchor we sail through the harbour past the
Old Port Captains office (three storey grey building to the right of the picture)

Past the floating crane

Heading for the harbour mouth we pass the Table Bay Hotel

The mouth of the harbour and the open sea beckons

The harbour is left behind and we get a fantastic view of Table Mountain with
its table cloth and the Table Bay hotel in the foreground

Sailing northwards we pass the entrance to Granger Bay which is about to be closed to boatsdue to the construction of residential units along the coastline. In the background is Signal Hill.

This cruise was part of a film shoot. The chase boat is in the foreground and if you look carefully you will see the photographer hanging over the side trying to take some pictures.

Signal Hill and Lion's Head with the Green Point coastline in the foreground. On the right in the water you can see part of an engine block of one of the many ships wrecked along this piece of coastline.

Another view of the Green Point Coastline

Green Point. In the centre of the photograph you can see a building with red and white diagonal lines. It is the Green Point Lighthouse.

Here we are sailing over the burial ground of the Seafarer. In the background Table Mountain is just coming into view over the rump of the lion between Signal Hill and Lion's Head.

Table Mountain in the background with its famous table cloth. In the foreground we are just reaching the outskirts of Sea Point.

We are just passing the northerly point of Table Bay and starting to sail towards the south. In the background is Lion's Head with part of the millionaire's mile of houses and apartments clinging to its slopes.

Further south and in the distance we can see the Twelve Apostle mountain range coming into view

Looking back we see the full extent of Signal Hill. When the breeze blows from the north the hang gliders launch from the top of the hill and circle over Sea Point before landing

Some more of millionaires mile with the Twelve Apostles in the background.

We've rounded Lions Head and are sailing southwards along the Atlantic coastline of the Cape Peninsula.

One of the most beautiful beaches along the Atlantic coastline : Camps Bay beach

Some of the boulders you will find in the bay off Clifton.

We've reached Clifton and are now sailing where the rich anchor their boats on weekends to enjoy the view and entertain their friends. In the foreground one of the many boats that anchor in the bay.

Another view of Clifton beach, one of the world famous bikini beaches. In the background Table Mountain

On our way back to the harbour we get this spectacular view of Table Mountain

Back in the harbour we sail past the fishing harbour on our left

Mandela Gateway to Robben Island where all the ferries to the island depart from.

The Sea Princess back at its dock in the Waterfront.

There are many short cruises in and around the harbour in Cape Town. They are reaonably priced and you can get to see some of the spectacular views I have shown you for yourself.
