Port Elizabeth Waterfront Boat Cruise

Cruise up to the Cape Recife Lighthouse on this scenic sightseeing boat trip in Port Elizabeth!

Enjoy a scenic cruise along the Port Elizabeth Waterfront aboard a 38ft catamaran, watching the sunset or just taking in the incredible view as you journey down to Cape Recife. The calm waters around the harbour make for a truly relaxing boat trip, so guests can sit back with some light snacks and drinks, and enjoy the ride!

The experience begins at the Port Elizabeth Harbour, where guests will be greeted by the friendly skipper and helped on board the boat. You're welcome to bring your own refreshments, so once everyone is settled and got a drink in their hand, the boat will cruise out of the harbour and head south towards Summerstrand. The waterfront has plenty of interesting landmarks to spot, including the disused Humewood Slipway (now the Humewood Pillars), the Apple Express Heritage Train, and Shark Rock Pier which extends from one of the most popular beaches in PE, Hobie Beach. The round trip takes around two hours, dropping you back at the harbour just in time to enjoy dinner at one of the many restaurants or bars along the waterfront.

This boat cruise is great for groups of friends looking to spend time together in a new and exciting way, or for tourists visiting the area and hoping to do some sightseeing in style. Enjoy!
