For anyone heading into Cape Town I have a great adventure combo for you. Yesterday I spent just over 2 hours on the most amazing experience.
It was a combo adventure experience of going up in a helicopter for exhilarating ride over Signal Hill, past Lions Head down to Sea Point and along to the coast to Clifton and Camps Bay, followed by an hour extreme boat ride out in the ocean.
For someone like myself that isn’t the biggest fan of flying it was AMAZING being up in the helicopter. I don’t do height extremely well… but the only time I felt a little uneasy was when the pilot took a sharp turn and I felt my stomach drop. I had the words of donkey in Shrek going through my mind ‘I’m looking down!!!’
All in all the flight took 15 minutes and was a once in the lifetime experience that I will always remember.
After that, we head on a high speed inflatable boat (with 2 x 250 HP motors) out to sea for an amazing 1hr trip to Camps Bay and Clifton. All I can say is that I wanted the controls! it was a great adrenline rush with us all jumping up in the air with every wave we ramped!
The photo angles that you get looking back at the city and the Atlantic Seaboard are spectacular. Pulling up to Clifton beach is epic.
These trips can be booked from any of the operators at Quay 5 at the V&A Waterfront.
Enjoy the ride
