About your host

I grew up living on a sailing boat with my family. We sailed around the world over a period of 6 years. My passion for sailing and all water sports is almost as strong as my love for telling stories and meeting new people. I've lived in Cape Town for many years and really enjoy showing people a side to Cape Town that most don't even know exist.

What we’ll do

We will spend the afternoon sailing under the foot of one of the 7 natural wonders of the world, Table Mountain. Hopefully some of the local sea-life (dolphins, sunfish, penguin, seals and maybe even whales) will come out to play. Depending on the weather and your desires, we can sail in table bay or to Robin Island where you get to skipper/crew the boat, head around to one of two anchorages for…

What else you should know

The boat can take up to 6 people including me. You will receive full refund if we cannot sail due to weather. No refunds for seasickness.

What I’ll provide

Kombucha, Juice, Beer I will provide drinks for the day. Only alcoholic beverage will be beer (max 6)
