Stampede introduces a new boat cruise for Algoa Bay!.
Stampede Cruises is delighted to announce that in conjunction with The Knysna Oyster Company and Zwembesi Farms we have introduced a new ‘Oyster Cruise’ to add to our current range of sea cruises on offer.
Ideally suited for small parties of up to 12 people, the Oyster Cruise departs early evening from the Algoa Bay Yacht Club. Exiting the Port Elizabeth harbour we take a slow cruise to the Zwembesi Oyster Farm situated in the relatively calm water north of the harbor. We then conduct a brief boat tour of the Oyster Farm, explaining various interesting factors relating generally to oysters and to oyster cultivation and more specifically to the Port Elizabeth based Zwembesi Farm operation itself.
Once the tour of the farm is concluded, we take a slow cruise across to the main Port Elizabeth beachfront. On the way Guests will be treated to six large ‘topless’ oysters with the appropriate trimmings to enjoy while they relax and take in our beautiful beaches and beachfront from the comfort of our 38ft catamaran Stampede. Guests are requested to bring along drinks of their choice to compliment the oysters.
The total cruise will last about 1,5 hours. Return to the harbor and Algoa Bay Yacht Club is nicely timed for guests to then consider moving on to complete the evening at a restaurant of their choice. We do of course strongly recommend simply stepping off Stampede at the dock and walking directly into The Chartroom restaurant situated at the Algoa Bay Yacht Club. They have a comprehensive menu with both excellent food and service together with a wonderful view over the Marina – a real nautical ambience.
Cost of the Oyster Cruise is R300 p/person.
