Brief Description
Our boat rides are unique and can be tailored to your needs. On this trip lasting 1 hour, we take you on a cruise through the Harbour area and around the Bay, stopping at all the scenic spots along the way.
Our boat is built for speed, but we will go as fast or as slow as is comfortable. We do specific speed runs for the adrenalin junkies, with high speed turns included.
Our boat, Eco Boat Rides, 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 on board 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 deck hand. Our skippers and deck hands have over twenty years experience at sea.
