Sweet Waters Adventure Sailing

Experience this famous classic sailing yacht and explore the Cape Peninsula with its prolific marine life from a completely unique and delightful angle.

Owner operated by a couple with vast experience in sailing, wildlife, chartering and entertainment, Sweet Waters Adventure Sailing produces exclusive sailing adventures.

Tailor-made personal tours of the magnificent Cape Peninsula for small parties of up to 6 passengers and centrally located in picturesque Hout Bay are offered with trips to and anchoring off Chapman’s Peak, Kommetjie, Scarborough and Cape Point, or to Sandy Bay, Camps Bay, Bakoven and Clifton.

Sailing from Hout Bay to the shoreline of the city centre and Atlantic seaboard takes about 4 hours. Trips to Dassen Island, Langebaan lagoon nature reserve, Mykonos, Saldahna and Simon’s Town can also be arranged.

The vessel is licensed for the entire South African coastline so visitors’ specific needs can be catered for and because there is collaboration with other specialised operators, activities like seal snorkeling and diving, RIB transfers to land, paddle boarding and others can also be enjoyed.

Guests may bring their own snacks and drinks or ask Sweet Waters to arrange that for them as they also collaborate with a wide range of restaurants and catering establishments. Talk to them about their floating piano bar for a unique experience.

The name Sweet Waters has historical significance as the original name for Cape Town given by the KhoiSan was ‘Camissa’ meaning ‘Place of Sweet Waters’.  Very recently, a film called, “Place of Sweet Waters”‚ was named one of four winners in a worldwide competition run by international charity WaterAid.

Sweet Waters Adventure Sailing aims to help Cape Town live up to that heritage and invites you to discover Sweet Waters with them.

All trips are weather dependent. Every trip is unique. Booking is essential.
