Cruising islands around the Bay

Sarah Dirsuwei and her family love to explore the world and share their experiences in their blog Chasing the Rainbow. Today they head out to sea with Stampede Cruises. Have you ever noticed a swish looking catamaran cruising along PE’s promenade? We certainly have, and have been itching to be the ones on board, watching the city from the water. So we booked ourselves tickets on Stampede Cruises and headed down to the harbour on a perfectly still and sunny December morning.

Stampede’s island ocean safari rounded off our experiences with Addo National Park. We loved it just as much as we love going on a land-based safari, and we experienced for ourselves some of the natural wonders of our rich marine world that draws visitors from all around the globe. Island tours are four hours long and cost R750 per person. Beachfront tours are two hours and cost R250 per person. Oyster tours include the beachfront tour as well as a visit to the oyster farm and fresh oysters on board for R300 per person. Bookings are essential: e-mail: or call 081-766-6749.
