Cape Town was founded as a Harbour city and has a proud nautical history. The cruise includes a trip through the V&A Waterfront's beautiful canal and stops at the One and Only, the City Lodge and the Harbour Bridge before arriving at the Westin and Cape Town International Convention Centre (Bus Stop 3).

Cruise the calm waters of the canal and enjoy the breathtaking views of Cape Town. Learn more about the rich and famous that own apartments along this canal and about the significance of this canal in once again joining the Central Business District to our harbour to complete what was once upon a time was called the "Tavern of the Seas" – when ships from all over the world stopped here to get fresh supplies.

This is a Hop On-Hop Off cruise, so you might decide to spend some time at any of the stops along the way and rejoin a later boat, or use the bus and boat combination to connect Stop 1, Two Oceans Aquarium and Stop 3, Cape Town International Convention Centre (CTICC) in either direction. You could also walk to Bus Stop 3 from Stop 5 (Long Street) and Stop 4 (Lower Long Street) and hop onto the Canal Cruise which will take you back to the V&A Waterfront. Either way, don’t miss out on this unique Cape Town experience!
