ROBBEN ISLAND OCEAN SAFARI

About the tour

The tour leaves from the V&A Waterfront with a Gemini 850 RIB and slowly makes way along the coast before heading into the open ocean towards the island, on the way we are looking out for any marine life like the Cape Fur Seals, Dusky, Heavy side and Common Dolphins and even Southern Right whales that are in the area. The island has become a haven for over 132 species of birds and 32 species of mammals ranging from wild buck to penguins. The boat will travel alongside the island for you to take in the views of the island whilst sipping a complementary cup of hot chocolate whilst our guides share some information about the history of Robben Island. We will slowly travel back to the V&A Waterfront and try to spot more marine life fount on the Atlantic Sea Board side of the Cape.

Check In Time

Please check in 20-30 minutes prior to your scheduled Take Off time. This will allow enough time for us to take weights, conduct a safety briefing and issue tickets. After this has been conducted you can relax on the viewing deck and take some great pre-flight pictures and enjoy the atmosphere.


Seating

Please be aware that seating allocation on all our sharing flights are done according to weight and balance which is done during your safety briefing and ticketing. Should you want to choose your own seats you can book an Exclusive Flight at the cost of one additional seat and you are guaranteed the ‘best seats in the house.

Best Pictures

For the best pictures we recommend that you wear darker coloured clothing as whites reflect off the inside of the windows and can spoil that epic shot. We do offer In Flight Video packages where we record you and your flight, including audio, and put it on a USB for you. Note that not all aircraft has this system available so please requests this on check in.


Weather

All flights are weather dependent. Should the conditions not be ideal for flying we will try to reschedule to the next best available flight window. Note that the temperature in the sky is exactly the same as on the ground in case you are wondering what to wear.
