Fullmoon rise and sunset cruise

Every month there are two evenings where the moon-rise coincides with the sunset. This is the night before and the night of the full moon, when guests on our sunset cruises are treated to the extra special experience of seeing the full moon rise over the mountains of False Bay.

Bio-luminescence

Bio-luminesence at sea

Sometimes conditions in False Bay are just right to encourage blooms of Red Tide – a plankton dinoflagellate Noctiluca scintillans  that is prone to population explosions under the right conditions.

During the day, it can form thick slicks on the surface similar in appearance to tomato soup, that is sometimes mistaken for pollution.

At night these tiny organisms emit a cold blue light when agitated and the collective glow from billions and billions of them can be spectacular lighting up the boats wake with with an almost neon glow.
