You advertise a ‘Sunset Champagne Cruise’. What happens if it’s cloudy or raining?

On most occasions we will sail. Whilst a visible sunset would be the best possible aspect of a sunset cruise, Waterfront Charters have no control over the weather! A cruise with or without that visible sunset is still a wonderful experience, and most of our guests are happy to take the trip and enjoy all the other aspects of an Atlantic adventure. The only time we will not sail is if the skipper of the boat deems it unsafe or too unpleasant at sea.

There is an accurate weather forecast page on the Waterfront Charters website: it is worth checking in advance to make sure the weather looks like it is going to fine for your trip. If you are concerned, change the date of your proposed trip.

What is the difference between the Sunset Champagne Cruises and the Champagne Cruises?

Both trips are 90 minutes in duration and both include Sparkling Wine and a cash bar.

Sunset Champagne Cruise

The Sunset Champagne Cruise leaves before Nautical Sunset and is timed to return to harbour in the dark, affording the opportunity to watch a Cape Town Atlantic sunset.

Champagne Cruises

The Champagne Cruise is an earlier cruise that normally leaves two hours before the  Sunset Champagne Cruise, and returns to harbour in daylight prior to sunset. The R50 difference in price is an effort to make the earlier trip more affordable to  family groups who are looking for a pre-dinner cruise.
