Durban: 30-Minute Harbor Boat Cruise
- Duration: 30 minutes
This tour will take you on an unforgettable trip around Durban. Durban Harbor is the biggest and busiest harbor in the southern hemisphere. The harbor tours are especially educational for kids, as the boat takes them to points of interest in Africa’s largest harbor and shows them the route through which ships enter the harbor, discharge cargo, and exit. The skipper will teach the passengers about the port and its operation. If the weather conditions are favourable, the boat may go further out from the shore. The skipper is in close contact with the passengers and will give you a comprehensive guided tour. The trip will either take you down the Maydon Wharf Channel or to the City and Cor Container terminal.
The skipper was so friendly and we found him easy to interact with, we even took a picture with him
Enjoy a sunset cruise around the port of Durban and out to sea along the Durban Beachfront. Choose the 1-hour option to cruise leisurely around the port and see the activities going on in the port. If you would like to spend more time out on the open ocean, opt for an option with a duration of 2 hours or more. Start with a slow cruise through the port and towards the exit, taking about 25 minutes. Out at sea, look back at the beautiful city of Durban as the sun sets over it. Sail along the durban coastline as you take in the beauty. If you are very lucky, you might run into some dolphins. End the tour back where you started at Wilson's Wharf. If the wind is too strong or the sea rough the cruise will continue in the port only for your comfort and safety. The boat is equipped with all the required safety equipment, with children's life jackets available.
