PENINSULA with WATER TAXI – FULL DAY
Tour Code: FA01
Depart the city along the Atlantic Seaboard past the coastal suburbs of Sea Point, Bantry Bay and Clifton and stop for a photo op of Table Mountain’s towering Twelve Apostles. On past Bakoven and Llandudno, marked by shipwrecks, to the fishing village of Hout Bay. Here, board a boat to view the Cape Fur Seal colony on Duiker Island (weather permitting).
On return, head over the 600m heights of Chapman’s Peak Drive, one of the world’s most spectacular passes, past the Cape’s longest beach near Noordhoek and the hamlets of Kommetjie and Scarborough – with a chance to sight Southern Right Whales just offshore from June to November!
Explore the rocky coastline and unique Fynbos vegetation, home to birds like African Black Oystercatchers and Cape Sugarbirds and view other endemic fauna like Cape Mountain Zebra, Bontebok and Baboon as we enter the Cape of Good Hope National Park. Climb (or ride a funicular) to the famous Cape Point Lighthouse, to capture the magical vistas of False Bay, and stop at the south westernmost point of Africa, the fabled Cape of Good Hope.
After lunch at a coastal restaurant, visit Boulders Beach, for a close-up with a colony of African Penguins.
Drive to the Waterfront in Simonstown where we board the Water Taxi for a short ride to Kalk Bay Harbor. The taxi hugs the coastline as we pass Fish Hoek Beach with magnificent views of the mountains and sea.
