Join us aboard the Spirit of Just Nuisance as we take a slow cruise around Simon's Bay to enjoy all the historic sites and splendid scenery that Simon's Town has to offer.
Our expert guide will talk you through its rich maritime heritage, spanning both the Dutch and British occupations. Hear the story of Able Seaman Just Nuisance, the much loved Great Dane who befriended the Royal Navy sailors stationed at Simon's Town during the Second World War.
Simon's Town is also the main base for the South African Navy with its recently acquired modern fleet in clear view. If you're lucky you may even see a Frigate or Strike-Craft leaving the harbour.
Along the way we're sure to encounter birdlife, seals and on occasions even whales. This cruise is equally enjoyable for locals and tourists alike and a great education for children.
