Full description
This tour will take you on an unforgettable trip around Durban. Durban Harbor is the biggest and busiest harbor in the southern hemisphere. The harbor tours are especially educational for kids, as the boat takes them to points of interest in Africa’s largest harbor and shows them the route through which ships enter the harbor, discharge cargo, and exit. The skipper will teach the passengers about the port and its operation. If the weather conditions are favourable, the boat may go further out from the shore. The skipper is in close contact with the passengers and will give you a comprehensive guided tour. The trip will either take you down the Maydon Wharf Channel or to the City and Cor Container terminal.

It was a good experiment. I really enjoyed the cruise. The stafff was very friendly they even called me asbi was running late to check where am i. The guide or driver was also friendy. He was communicating with us and also teaching us about the ships and how they operate.

It was breath taking ,we were even allowed to dance while the boat driver played some very nice tunes,and he was informative cos he showed us some of the things and different ships and what they used for not only did we have fun but also learned ,a very good combination

Very nice and wished my family had booked an hour long boat ride. The skipper (Siboniso) made it more interesting as he explained activities taking place around the harbour. What I did not likenis the littering in the water as you go to the boat. The littering in Durban is an eyesore
