Water Taxi Ride on the Marina
We know you appreciate the finer things in life and there is no better time to reward yourself than after one of our trademark eco-active cycle trips. Once you've burnt some carbs why not join us for a water taxi ride on the Victoria and Alfred Waterfront Marina, the perfect way to end off your evening as the sun sets over the fairest Cape.
Our Cape Town Evening by bike trip begins and ends at the Waterfront Marina, home to the elegant Cape Grace Hotel, one of Africa's finest establishments. And in Cape Town, we believe in celebrating the sunset in style so before we indulge in canapes at the hotel, our guests will be treated to a water taxi trip through the Yacht Marina.
The water taxis host a maximum of 8 guests and are shaped like giant soccer balls, as World Cup fever takes our city by storm. So after hopping off our light, state-of-the-art road bikes, we hop aboard our floating taxi with skipper Bob Shuttes. A glass of bubbly is awaiting our arrival and we toast to a memorable evening and cycle through the city.
We circle our way through the marina complex, past elegant hotels, upmarket residential apartments, with seals frolicking in the water and yachts casting off their sails. The light assumes that lovely evening glow as the sun slips slowly below the horizon and twinkling stars come out to illuminate the world. It is a magical time of day - and magical place to be.
After a short 30-minute cruise, our stomachs are now rumbling and we return to the Cape Grace for gourmet canapes at the Bascule Bar, occupying pride of place in the yacht basin. Local delicacies, such as bobotie platters and smoked salmon crackers, along with fresh fruit and cinnamon pastries, tantalise the tastebuds and compliment the sparkling wine.
So why not get off the beaten track and experience Cape Town like never before? Whether you are a local or first time visitor, our unique cycle route, expert guides, relaxing water taxi cruise and gourmet snacks will prove unforgettable!
