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.

    What an awesome experience. The Skipper (Michael) was very friendly, informative about the activities happening in and around the harbour, the overall experience was just absolutely great. The office called us to check our whereabouts when we were running a bit late, tickets issuing was a quick and easy experience, we were guided on what and where to go. I really enjoyed my cruise and would definitely choose booking through Get your Guide again because honestly, for people who visited there for the first time - we were properly guided.
