sunset champagne cruise


Our Most Popular Daily Scheduled Trip     

The Current Sunset Champagne Cruise Departure time is 17h00 
 (VALID -1st June 2014 2014 to 31 July 2014)

The Mother City Cape Town has one of the best locations to see the Sunset from the Sea. This is certainly a "Must Do " Trip to see Fabulous Table Mountain and city views while the sun dips into the sea at sunset.We Serve a Complimentary Glass of local sparkling wine per person  ( or a Bottle per Couple )
A Cash Bar is available for other Beers and Softdrinks . We have a Kids Price as kids are welcome , but remember it is an adult cruise !
Cape Town Weather can change 5 times a day , so our route is not always predicatable , so the two options are merley a guide.
SUNSET UNDER SAIL  
The Sail boat ESPERANCE follows the wind for this cruise. They do not offer a specific destination . Typically in a SE Wind they motor out of the Harbour and sail across Table Bay towards Milnerton lighthouse, then return to the protection of Granger Bay in the lee of Table  Mountain to watch the sun set, and then motor back to the Waterfront.
SUNSET on a Motor Vessel. 
The Motor Vessels  SEA PRINCESS and SOUTHERN CROSS follow a different route to the sail boats.As they are not dependant on the wind they  can offer a destination and normally cruise slowly along the Atlantic seaboard towards Clifton beach and return...

Sunset Cruise Departure Times -and why they change PDF Print E-mail

We try to arrange the departure of our Sunset Champagne Cruise around the time of the Sunset .This cruise is designed to catch the Sunset and catchs both daylight before and Nautical twilight and then darkness after .

As the Sun sets at a different time every day it would be impractical to have a different Sunset Cruise departure time every day . We therefore have set departure times over the year between 17h00 and 19h00 SAST ( South African Standard Time ).The Amount of daylight / twilight / darkness therefore also changes with each cruise .We move the departure times in 30 minute increments 17h00,17h30,18h00,18h30 and 19h00 and then back downwards again as we move to midwinter .

  • Definitions of Twilight
    Civil Twilight

    Civil twilight is defined when the sun is 6 degrees below the horizon. This is the limit at which twilight illumination is sufficient, under good weather conditions, for terrestrial objects to be clearly distinguished; at the beginning of morning civil twilight, or end of evening civil twilight, the horizon is clearly defined and the brightest stars are visible under good atmospheric conditions in the absence of moonlight or other illumination. In the morning before the beginning of civil twilight and in the evening after the end of civil twilight, artificial illumination is normally required to carry on ordinary outdoor activities.
    Nautical Twilight
    Nautical twilight is defined when the sun is 12 degrees below the horizon. At the beginning or end of nautical twilight, under good atmospheric conditions and in the absence of other illumination, general outlines of ground objects may be distinguishable, but detailed outdoor operations are not possible, and the horizon is indistinct.
    Astronomical Twilight
    Astronomical twilight is defined when the sun is 18 degrees below the horizon. Before the beginning of astronomical twilight in the morning and after the end of astronomical twilight in the evening the sun does not contribute to sky illumination; for a considerable interval after the beginning of morning twilight and before the end of evening twilight, sky illumination is so faint that it is practically imperceptible.
