Boat and Yacht cruises

From last-minute cruises to luxurious sunset trips on a yacht to seal snorkelling, boat and yacht options are (naturally) in abundance at the V&A Waterfront. They also cater to large groups, so if you’re craving a jol on the ocean, we highly recommend doing so at The Waterfront.

The Cape Wheel 

Our Cape Wheel is a massive observation wheel that provides a breathtaking 360-degree panoramic view of Cape Town from the lively V&A Waterfront precinct. It has 30 fully-enclosed air-conditioned carriages, two that are wheelchair-friendly, that elevate you 40 metres above the ground in safety and comfort on a four-revolution ride. Table Mountain, Robben Island, the Cape Town City skyline, the Paarl Mountains, and the Cape Town Stadium are all visible from the Wheel.


We’d love to make your stay as comfortable as possible at the Capital.
