Cosy bathtub-boats are magical sea vessels but sight-seeing and cruises are often restricted to the confines of four glossy walls and rather unfriendly rubber duckies. Reacquaint yourself with Durban’s picturesque landscape with today’s Groupon: a 90-minute scenic sunset sea cruise for R110 per person with Hakuna Matata Charters.
Though saddling up a few seahorses and uttering a confident “giddy-up” may make for a great story, there’s still nothing quite like the quiet adventure of a Hakuna Matata Charters sunset cruise. Harnessing ample amounts of good times in two luxurious 58-foot catamarans, the leading charter boat company guarantees trips with no worry of whiplash and far less soggy shirts than the seahorses offer. Round up family or friends, or embark on a romantic escapade where the sun slowly dips into the water and Durban’s landscape basks in its golden glimmers.
With years of experience and a vault of Yoda-like wisdom of the ocean, boat operators will whisk you off on sea rides of a lifetime, departing from the harbour channel and heading for the ocean. Relax and have a sun-downer, take in the views of Durban and the famed Moses Mabhida Stadium and watch as the sun spills stunning colours over the boat and the ocean. Whether you’re in the company of friends or new acquaintances, the comfortable surroundings and enchanting atmosphere makes for an experience that other Durbanites will no sooner envy you for. In fact, with the sun dancing over the ocean, the landscape dancing in the sunlight and a few sea creatures popping over for a swim or fly-by, chances are you’ll return to the harbour feeling like you’ve witnessed a fantasy theatrical piece.
Seafaring Fact: Boat operators in Hawaii use balls of dough to create cup-holders aboard their boats. The innovative process has been proven successful on sunny days; however, rainy days often result in people having to drink their beverages off the floor.
