A Seaworthy Stalwart

Fun cruises are what the Southern Cross is all about! This sturdy boat is based on a trawler design, and could probably take on the wildest of seas safely, but here at Waterfront Charters her job is to carry happy passengers on fun cruises through the vibrant V&A Waterfront area, and along the Atlantic coastline.

Carrying up to 65 passengers on her double decks, Southern Cross is also the perfect boat just to sit back and relax, chilled drink in hand, and take a break.


Check out scheduled cruises at and join us for a half-hour or full hour harbour cruise; or take in Cape Town and Table Mountain from a coastal cruise.
