The boat is included with your accommodation. The hull is a fibreglass 17ft GAMEFISH boat, fitted with 2 Mariner 4 stroke Bigfoot engines. It comes with a skipper, who knows the territory and channels, as well as the various locations worth visiting. The boat may be used to visit anywhere around the peninsula and the Islands.

What a fantastic advantage to have total control of your water sports and excursions during your visit! It is great to be able to check the weather and spontaneously choose what outing suits some or all of your family and friends. The boat is big enough to take the whole household of up to 10 pax.

Some of the wonderful boat excursions include:

snorkelling in the channel, at Inhaca or on the way to Portuguese Island.

trips to Portuguese Island or Inhaca Island for picnic lunches, Inhaca Village, The Maritime Museum, Luca’s Sea Food Restaurant on Inhaca.

water-skiing and tubing.

fishing in the bay (please bring own equipment), or in the channel on an incoming tide, or drop off on Inhaca point. If you wish to charter a fishing boat, please enquire.

sundowner cruises; trips to Santa Maria Village, etc.

Whilst the boat is included with your accommodation package, fuel usage is for the account of the visitors. Our staff will reconcile the fuel used by you and replenish the stock at your cost, ready for the next visitors. Please make sure you budget for approx. 3-5 containers of 25 litres/week = 2,500-R3,500 of fuel for the week.

Equipment such as water-skis, tube, ski-rope, lifejackets, snorkelling equipment, beach chairs, umbrellas and a shade gazebo are included for use on excursions. There is no limit to the hours you may enjoy the boat, since fuel will be for visitor’s cost at approx. R27/ litre (M100/litre at Santa Maria village)
