Sailing the fabulous Cape Peninsula
Our aim is to produce the unusual, rare and exclusive in your travelling adventures. This charter company aims at creating tailor made personal tours for small parties who want to experience the unique in sailing. We are not an organisation marketing high volume standardised tours. Here you engage with us in a conspiracy to turn your sailing dreams into reality.
Experience a few hours, or a day on a real lived-in classic cruising yacht. Explore this magnificent coastline, anchor off cliffs, coves and beaches and observe the prolific sea life right up close and personal.
Arrange extra activities like being whisked off by an inflatable to shore where you can meet someone to take you through the famous Chapman's Peak Pass, horse riding at Noordhoek, or even diving with the seals at the famous Duiker Island named after the diving Cormorant.
Ask us to arrange some SUP boards.
Or just sit back under sail or at anchor and soak it all in.
With over 23 years of chartering experience, the operators of this famous and graceful commercially licensed sailing yacht are truly seasoned in creating unforgettable experiences. The Facebook pages Yacht Sweet Waters and Port Sail Charters bear witness to that. Please go to the links tab and enjoy scrolling through the record.
