During our Peninsula tour, you have the option to add onto to the Peninsula experience, a ± 40 Minute cruise to a small island situated off the coast of Hout Bay, where you will see a small colony of seals occupying the island.
THE MAJOR ATTRACTIONS WE WILL VISIT ARE THE FOLLOWING:
1. HOUT BAY HARBOUR
Our first stop will be at the hout bay harbour. Hout Bay is the base port to rich marine life and offers some of the finest yellowfin tuna, longfin tuna, and yellowtail fishing in the world along with a huge variety of pelagic sea birds with many different species been sighted at different times of the year.
The harbour has restaurants, fresh fish outlets and craft stores, with views of the bay and boat rides to Duiker Island and around The Sentinel. The Hout Bay Harbour market happens offers handmade arts and crafts that can be bought, and a range of foods is available.
2. CHAPMANS PEAK
Our second stop will be Chapman’s peak for a quick photo stop at a the top of Chapman’s Peak Drive. A spectacular road with a spectacular view.
3. CAPE POINT
Our third stop, The Cape of Good Hope is at the southern tip of the Cape Peninsula, about 2.3 kilometres (1.4 mi) west and a little south of Cape Point on the south-east corner.
With its diverse habitat, ranging from rocky mountain tops to beaches and open sea, the Cape of Good Hope is home to at least 250 species of birds including one of the two mainland colonies of African pengiuns, baboon and rare antelope called Bontebok.
4. BOULDERS BEACH / PENGUIN COLONY
Our fourth stop, Boulders Beach is a sheltered beach made up of inlets between granite boulders, from which the name originated. It is located in the Cape Peninsula, near Simon’s Town towards Cape Point. It is a popular place due to the colony of African penguins which settled there in 1982. These African penguins are only found on the coastlines of Southern Africa – (South Africa & Namibia). One of the only places in the world that you can swim alongside penguins.
