The Islands Boat Tour in Port Elizabeth has it all; fantastic scenery, knowledgeable and entertaining guides, and the luxury of a 38ft catamaran to enjoy it from. Cruise to St Croix, Brenton And Jahleel Island and spot the many African penguins living there!
The four hour morning trip sets off from Port Elizabeth Harbour, circling round the breakwater towards the Port of Ngqura, reaching Jahleel Island and jetting out to sea until you reach Brenton Island. Keen birdwatchers will be thrilled to spot Cape Gannets flying between the islands, and if you're lucky you may even sight Bottlenose Dolphins and Southern Right Whales! The stars of the show though have to be the African Penguins on St Croix Island, the largest colony in the world. These birds are currently listed as endangered due to exploitation and pollution, but many organisations in PE are working hard to conserve the population - so hopefully you'll get to see a thriving community of adorable penguins!
The Port Elizabeth Islands Boat Tour is as educational as it is entertaining, making it a great day out for tourists and locals alike. Perfect as an experience gift or a treat to yourself!
