More about Boat trip - 30 minutes

A slow cruise or adrenaline adventure

Our boat rides are unique and can be tailored to your needs. Lasting 30 minutes, we take you on a cruise through the Harbour area and around the Bay, stopping at all the scenic spots along the way. We exit the Bay towards Noordhoek, where we view the highest point of Chapman’s Peak and Slangkop Lighthouse in the distance. We ride across towards Duiker/Seal Island, where we stop and view the resident seal colony. Experience spectacular views of Chapman’s Peak, the Sentinel and Karbonkelberg, and the world-famous Dungeons area. Our boat is built for speed. The 2 x 200HP Yamaha engines ensure that you will fly across the waves, going as fast or as slow as is comfortable. We do specific speed runs for the adrenalin junkies, with high speed turns included. Our boat, CAWSAW, is an 8.5 m Gemini semi-rigid, with two 4-stroke 200 HP Yamaha Engines. It complies with all the regulations set by the South African Maritime Safety Authority (SAMSA). The SAMSA approved safety equipment onboard includes a radio, life jackets, a first aid kit, and flares. The boat can accommodate up to 10 Passengers. There are always two crew members on board, consisting of the skipper and a deckhand. Our Skippers and Deck Hands have over twenty years of experience at sea.

We really enjoyed the trip. Our skipper was very caring, considerate and also took the time to educate and inform us of various aspects in the ocean and on the land. Thank you very much

We had a great time. Skipper was very knowledgeable and considerate. He even took the time to take my family back out for a cruise down the beach. Fun time my kids loved it . Time to get a rib again!!

Tim Williams

This was a fantastic, exhilarating boat trip out to see the seals and much more around Hout Bay. Our captain and guide were very knowledgeable and entertaining and we had a really lovely experience.

We were lucky to meet whales on the way to the seals so it was a mind-blowing experience! Brent was an amazing tour guide and provide us with many interesting details re whales and seals. It was real life Nat Geo experience :)

Captain Jacks

The concept of Captain Jack’s was born a number of years ago, from the need to have a fast boat on the water, available immediately, to take people out on the water without delay and back in a timely fashion.
