A Harbour cruise is a Boat Trip or Ride that stays in the port and does not go out to sea, if you are prone to sea sickness just talk with the Captain (Skipper) at the beginning of your cruise and ask him to keep your cruise in the port.
You can ask the Captain (Skipper) or the crew questions about any of the activities that go on in the port, here you will also come up close to big ships that are in the Port of Durban.

Terms and Conditions

We only book out the whole boat and do not take per person bookings or make up groups.

You need to book the boat, advance bookings required.

Please read through our terms, conditions, policies and notes, they are placed on 2 pages of our website so they cannot be missed.

Cancellation Policy
Once you have booked a time it is allocated to you and we cannot sell that time to anyone else, if you cancel or do not arrive you will deprive us from selling that time and we would have lost it and so we do not offer a refund.
If you arrive late you will lose the amount of time that you are late by and if you arrive after your scheduled time you will lose your trip and your deposit is not refundable.
We can reschedule your trip subject to availability if you notify us in advance by at least 2 working days.

Late Arrival Policy
It must be understood that we run a schedule with trips operating before and after your allocated time and if you are late we cannot let this affect others who arrive on time, furthermore we are not only waiting for you on that day we have many trips and customers to attend to and cannot allow the actions of one customer to affect another and so if you are late your trip will be shortened by the time you are late and if you arrive after you scheduled time you will lose your trip and deposit.
Even if we do try to accommodate you, this act of kindness does not infringe on our rights and policy.

Refunds
The only time that we will refund is if the weather conditions are not suitable and we are not able to reschedule or if the boat is out of order, there are no refunds for late arrivals or cancellations whatsoever.
There are also no refunds if you cut your trip short due to sea sickness.
Cancellation due to weather conditons is at the sole discretion of the Captain (Skipper) at the time who will make the decison based on safety reasons and his decision is final as your safety is his responsibility.

Deposits
Your trip is only booked once you have paid a deposit, usually 50% or if another amount is agreed by us when booking.
No deposit means your booking is unconfirmed.
Please send us your proof of payment and use the reference number given to you at the time of booking so we can allocate your payment to you.
Deposits are payable within 48 hours for bookings made well in advance, if no deposit paid in this time we will offer that time slot to someone else.
Short notice booking require a deposit to be paid within 1 hour. We operate on a first paid first served basis.

Bad and Drunken Behaviour
Bad and drunken behaviour will not be tolerated at any time, this causes a risk to the safety of all passengers and crew onboard. Should bad and/or drunken behavour occur during your trip, the Captain (Skipper) will return to the marina immediatly and your trip will be ended with no refund. Should violence occure we will ensure that the authorities will be waiting at the marina on your return to deal with you accordingly.
Drugs and Hard liquor are not allowed.

Note 1
The trip from Wilson's Wharf through the harbour to the exit of the Harbour Mouth is around 5km and on average takes 25 minutes, and the same on the return (50 min total depending on port traffic and conditions). So if you want to spend time on a sea cruise you need to book longer trips to allow for this.
The speed limit in the port is 6 knots which is around 11km/hr and this is the speed that the boat runs on our cruises.

Note 2
Please note that it is not always possible to exit the port on a cruise, when the wind blows too strong and makes the sea rough we do not exit the port and may only go as far as the port exit or we stay in port according to the Captains (Skippers) discretion which is final. When these days happen we do not cancel the cruise and refund, this is beyond our control.

Note 3
We reserve the right to make changes to schedules at any time due to operational requirements or weather conditions without notice or at short notice. Unfortunately there are things that happen beyond our control and we have to adapt accordingly.

All our boats are legally registered and equipped with the full required safety equipment and life jackets as required by the South African Maritime Safety Authority (SAMSA)
Children under 12 years old are legally required to wear a Life Jacket at all times.
