Robben Island & Table Mountain Tour

Table Mountain has made it into the final round of the New 7 Wonders of Nature contest. The top 28 wonders from around the world were announced on Tuesday July 21, 2009 by the New7Wonders Foundation in Zurich, Switzerland. Table Mountain must now compete for a place among the top 7 wonders to be announced in 2011.
 Visit the mountain with your Sea More-Express Tour Guide, and experience for yourself why it is called a natural wonder of the earth.
The other half of the day includes an inspiring journey to Robben Island.

“During the many years of incarceration on Robben Island, we
often looked across Table Mountain at its magnificent silhouette…
To us on Robben Island, Table Mountain was a beacon of hope. It
represented the mainland to which we knew we would one day return.”
– Nelson Mandela  
From the 17th to the 20th centuries, Robben Island served as a place of banishment, isolation and imprisonment. Today it is a World Heritage Site and museum, a poignant reminder to the newly democratic South Africa of the price paid for freedom.  

The Robben Island tour includes a return trip across Table Bay, a visit to the Maximum Security Prison, and a bus tour of the Island.
Depending on the weather as well as the sea conditions, it will be done either in the morning or in the afternoon, and Table Mountain the other half of the day.
Robben Island Ferries depart at 9am, 11am, 1pm and 3pm, weather permitting, from Nelson Mandela Gateway, at the V&A Waterfront in Cape Town.
Your experienced Sea More-Express Tour Guide will ensure your day is problem free and arranged in a way that is relaxing as well as allowing time for a special lunch.
