If there’s one thing you should make sure you get the chance to do in Cape Town, its a Cape Town sunset cruise. It took me no less than four visits to realise this, so I’m telling you now before you make my same mistake. There are a number of companies offering sunset cruises – from your regular ol’ boat to none other than a pirate ship!?

The cruises all cost around the $30 mark and some even offer a complimentary glass of champagne for the journey. Tours kick off around 7pm or half an hour before sunset depending on the time of year. Most visitors who come to Cape Town have a sunset boat cruise on their list of things to do… so to avoid disappointment, be sure to book in advance!
