“OK but watch the weather and the passangers”
Review of Tigresse Catamaran

Tigresse Catamaran

Attraction details
Owner description: The boat is docked at the V&A Waterfront in down town Cape Town.
Reviewed 20 January 2012

This is a large catamaran that sails from Cape Town Waterfront. Tigresse seats between 40 - 60 passengers. That makes the Tigresse the largest sailing catamaran in Africa. I was looking forward to this trip but there were problems:
** Overcrowding: the vessel was filled to the brim with very noisy kids and adults. The noise was unbearable and people were jockeying for seats.
** Bar poor: no service
** Watch the weather: if its choppy in Table Bay, do not buy a ticket if you don't want to get seasick

Pluses: exciting, fast vessel, great views, good crew

Worth it on a calm day.

Reviewed 15 January 2012

This is a large impressive vessel and a reasonable way of viewing Table Mountain from the bay.

However there are a number of cons:
- very noisy and over-crowded
- quite uncomfortable
- can be an overwhelming number of unrestrained children if you hit the
wrong day or the wrong group
- poor service (a beer if you're lucky)
- do not go on anything but a calm day - or you'll be sorry
