• Come aboard when the vessel is in Durban port. This is a unique opportunity to be shown the workings of an active sea-going expedition boat, to meet scientists and crew, and find out about the conservation and research work she is engaged in. By joining us you will be contributing to our efforts to protect the oceans.

We offer a personalised experience for small groups of up to 10 people. Book individually or as a group.

Activities on offer include day trips, sunset cruises and exclusive dining.

Offshore day cruises. You will see Durban from a completely different angle as we cruise along the beach front past the Moses Mabhida Stadium – or south along the Bluff.  We will anchor to enjoy a picnic lunch spread and snorkel and swim off the boat, weather permitting. This trip is approximately 5 hours.

Highlights include:

  • Snacks and soft drinks
  • Mediterranean-style picnic spread
  • Presentation by marine scientist about the research the vessel is involved in
  • Tour of vessel with knowledgeable crew
  • Snorkel and swim, if weather permits
  • Cruise offshore past Moses Mabida Stadium

Sunset cruises. Before we cast off you will be shown around the ship by our friendly crew and hear about her history in conservation and recent research cruises. You can then relax in comfort on the deck as we head out to sea through the harbour channels and have a sun-downer whilst watching the sun go down over Durban and Moses Mabhida Stadium.  Steaming back you will enjoy the city lights from out at sea and beautiful reflections as we cruise back through the port. The cruise includes cocktail snacks and a glass of champagne. This cruise is approximately 3 hours.

Dinner on the deck. Spend a magical evening aboard the vessel alongside at Trawlers Wharf. You will be wined and dined by our friendly crew, and learn more about our conservation efforts that you will be contributing towards by joining us. Contact us for more information and private bookings.
