About
The One Hour 'Sailing in The Bay' experience is the perfect way to see Table Mountain and Cape Town’s Atlantic shoreline aboard Esperance. Leaving from the V&A Waterfront, Cape Town, the routing is weather dependent; either to Milnerton and back if the south-easter is blowing, or towards Robben Island in north-westerly wind conditions. With either option, you’ll experience the excitement and thrills of sailing in Table Bay aboard one of Waterfront Charters beautiful yachts – with chilled refreshments aboard it’s the perfect way to spend an hour. *In the unlikely event that the primary boat for this cruise is unavailable due to unforeseen circumstances, we reserve the right to utilize an alternative vessel for this experience. Be assured that Waterfront Charters will always make every possible effort to ensure that the advertised vessel is available.

We had such a amazing time, felt like tourist in our own beautiful country a special thank you to Cameron and the rest of the crew you made sure the vibe was amazing... We love the beautiful Cape and this was just a different view. I loved that they actually stopped the boat to pick up a drifting piece of plastic bag from the ocean, if all humans where like you! Well done guys!! Thanks again*

Absolutely incredible experience!! We discovered Serenity One on the Entertainer app and thought it looked fun - we were not disappointed! Dylan and the amazing crew were funny, hospitable and knowledgeable - highlighting points of interest as we left the waterfront harbour.
We were blessed to see a huge pod of dolphins, seals, penguins and even a brief sighting of a whale. Perfect weather condition too. Will definitely be back!!

I had an excellent time on the Serenity one this afternoon and I must say the crew were an exceptional crew, they made us laugh and made sure we had a wonderful time. I really enjoyed seeing the dolphins and the music on the boat, I would definitely recommend this tour to my friends as I would in the future want to do it again myself. Shout out to Gavin for making this a wonderful experience for me and to skipper and Gary for taking good care of us. This is a definite must-do when coming to cape town,
