St Lucia is truly blessed in being able to offer such an incredible array of Boat Tours & Charters. Most Boat Tours take place on the St Lucia Estuary, being South Africa's very first world heritage site and also home to the largest free-roaming Hippo population in South Africa. The estuary is home to approximately 800 Hippos as well as 1200 Nile Crocodiles not to mention the abundance of birdlife.
Boat Departures take place every two hours and the duration is 2 hours. Enjoy a slow cruise up the estuary and witness the resident Hippos both along the banks and in the estuary. One can but only be amazed when one gets to see those amazing Hippo yawns.
Early morning and late afternoon trips are but magnificent times to spend on the estuary.
Other St Lucia Tours and Charters on the water include Deep Sea Fishing, Whale Watching and Scuba Diving from Cape Vidal.
Deep-Sea Fishing Charters depart daily (weather dependant) and game fishing is only allowed, (no bottom fishing). Game Fish species include the likes of Cuda, Queen Mackeral, Dorado, Wahoo, Sailfish and Marlin. Please do note that varying seasons do occur.
Whale Watching takes place yearly from June to end of November when the mighty Humpback Whales migrate past the shores of St Lucia. This annual migration is absolutely a must. Please note that Whales may also be witnessed sometimes of the beaches from both St Lucia as well as Cape Vidal. So do keep an eye out as they breach.
