  • Port Elizabeth: Whale, Dolphin and Penguin Boat Cruise

    2. Port Elizabeth: Whale, Dolphin and Penguin Boat Cruise

    The tour departs from Algoa Bay Yacht Club at Port Elizabeth Harbor in the early morning. Board the catamaran with your guide, and then set sail onto the waters where the adventure begins. As you sail around the coastline, watch out for the vast array of marine life that lives here, as you learn about their mating and migration patterns.

  • Port Elizabeth: Sandboarding with Short Boat Trip

    Travel down the picturesque Sundays River to the Alexandria Dune field; the largest and most impressive dune field in South Africa. Suited to beginners and experienced sandboarders, choose from 2 or 3-hour sandboarding tours which give you ample time to learn some new skills and have a great time while doing it. If you are not quite comfortable to stand on the board, try a sit down or belly-board ride down the dune. Otherwise the guides will show you how to master the technique of standing on the board as you surf down the dune.

What people are saying about Port Elizabeth

Was pretty sunny in the beginning and at the farthest point we saw a lot of dolphins that went with the boat and many penguins on the rocks. Unfortunately we didn't see a whale, but the season was over. Nice, pleasant, enthusiastic guides!

I wouldn’t trade this experience for anything, the breath taking beauty of the river that expose you to the ocean was marvelous. The view of the sand dunes......I can do this repeatedly
