Sail and swim off Clifton

Rates subject to increase on 1 September 2024

This is most the most relaxing of all our experience collection. Sail on a luxurious day catamaran (choose one of 2 in the fleet). The cat departs from the V and A harbour and makes its way around to anchor off Clifton beach. The journey allows you to marvel at Table Mountain, Signal Hill, Lions Head and the beautiful Twelve Apostles. The cruise takes about 40 minutes until you reach the bay off Clifton Beach.

Once at Clifton you can either relax on the boat, enjoy a swim or a stand up paddle board. The boat is like a floating deck so there is no need to do much other than to sit and relax in the sun. Catering is by request but the options include a traditional South African braai, sushi and even a plate of fresh oysters.

There is a cash bar on board with an extensive range of soft drinks, wine, beer and other alcohol.

So eat, swim, play and relax before you sail home to the V and A .

Food must be ordered when you book from various menus including Sushi, Oysters and other South African Cuisine. The food is an additional cost.

Important Information

Check In Time

Please check in 20-30 minutes minutes prior to your scheduled Take Off time. This will allow enough time for us to take weights, conduct a safety briefing and issue tickets. After this has been conducted you can relax on the viewing deck and take some great pre-flight pictures and enjoy the atmosphere.

Best Pictures

For the best pictures we recommend that you wear darker coloured clothing as whites reflect off the inside of the windows and can spoil that epic shot.


Please be aware that seating allocation on all our sharing flights are done according to weight and balance which is done during your safety briefing and ticketing. Should you want to choose your own seats you can book an Exclusive Flight at the cost of one additional seat and you are guaranteed the ‘best seats in the house.


All flights are weather dependent. Should the conditions not be ideal for flying we will try to reschedule to the next best available flight window. Note that the temperature in the sky is exactly the same as on the ground in case you are wondering what to wear.
