Depart Cape Town Harbour and drive over Kloof Nek Drive to Camps Bay, a beautiful, up-market residential suburb, before continuing to the small fishing harbour in Hout Bay. Join a 35-minute boat cruise from Hout Bay harbour to Duiker Island which is the Seal Colony beneath the well-known Sentinel Mountain where you can view thousands of Cape Fur Seals in their natural environment. From Hout Bay, you will travel along the scenically beautiful Chapman’s Peak Drive (provided the road is open), and proceed through Sunnydale and Simon’s Town to Boulders Beach, where you will be visiting the African penguin colony. Boulders Penguin Colony is home to a unique and endangered land-based colony of African Penguins. This colony is one of only a few in the world, and the site has become famous and a popular international tourist destination. Thereafter return to the quayside passing Fish Hoek, the colorful fishing harbor of Kalk Bay before turning on to Boyes Drive, which offers magnificent views of Muizenberg and False Bay, before joining the M3 motorway en-route to Cape Town Harbour.
