Esperance Private Charters

Ride The Winds of the Southern Coast

Esperance Private Charters

Sail from Cape Town V&A Waterfront into Table Bay towards destinations such as Robben Island or Milnerton depending on the wind direction. Or cruise gently into Table Bay for a magical private Sunset Champagne Cruise.



Your Private Esperance Charter:

Esperance is a purpose-built day charter Sailing Schooner. A schooner experience is a true sailing adventure: they are not modern-day floating palaces, but give guests a genuine feel of yachting on the ocean’s waves. She is unmistakeably a yacht built for excitement: guests perched on the bowsprit have the best view in Table Bay, not to mention occasional cooling dashes of flying spray! Esperance has twin seating areas in large sunken cockpits below the rigging and sails, ideal for groups of up to 35 that prefer to experience cruising in its pure form, and perfect for sailing across Table Bay whilst taking in the spectacular views.

Smaller Group rate:

The reduced passenger rate is ideal for those wanting to book smaller groups of up to 8. Make sure you check out this option when creating your private charter experience.

What to Wear:

We recommend non-deck marking shoes (e.g. trainers/deck shoes, no high heels), hat, a windbreaker, sunglasses, and sun lotion

Covid-19 Management Plan

In line with Government protocol, Luxury Catamaran Charters have a comprehensive management plan in place. Keeping safe, of course, is up to every individual as well:  we encourage you to take extra precautions at all times to stop the spread of the virus and do your part to flatten the curve. This includes wearing your mask when out in public, keeping a 1.5m distance from others to practice safe social distancing, washing your hands regularly, and not touching your face. If you feel ill or unwell, please remain indoors, and should you experience any COVID-19 symptoms – please consult with your doctor immediately.

Our management plan is based on the standard approach to reducing the spread of Covid-19:

  • Company Policies and Procedures
    We have explored all the governmental and health sector recommendations, and have adjusted our policies and procedures accordingly.
  • Risk assessment and adjustment strategies
    We realise that Covid-19 management is a moving target; we continually update and adjust strategies when necessary.
  • Employee training methodologies
    We understand that staff training and buy-in to the Luxury Catamaran Charters protocols are an intrinsic part of the process and continually train and update staff members on the necessary requirements, functions, and legislation.
  • Security Protocols
    There can be no breach of the regulations; we have strict controls in place to monitor processes.

We have taken into account the V&A Waterfront recommendations and criteria when setting up the procedures: their plans are intrinsic to the safety of the Waterfront, and we work within their parameters. We are constantly monitoring governmental regulations and recommendations, and will immediately adjust our protocols to meet the demands.

Our staff and guests are our lifeblood; we will do everything in our power to keep them safe in this time of crisis. If we all work together in this regard we can beat this virus and Luxury Catamaran Charters can return to a full schedule of cruises in absolute safety.
