SCENIC EXPERIENCES IN WESTERN CAPE
glass bottomed boat 1066x400
CIRCE LAUNCHES, established the passenger launch service to the Cape Fur Seal and Sea bird colony at Duiker Island, Hout Bay, in 1972.
In 2001, CIRCE LAUNCHES welcomed their new vessel, m.v. Calypso to the fleet. Experience of the local weather and sea conditions was carried through in her design, for passenger comfort and safety. She has ample outside deck seating, upper deck viewing and comfortable, inside cabin seating. She is the only glass bottomed passenger launch in South Africa with the unique attraction of two glass viewing ports at the bottom of the boat.
During good visibility, our passengers are able to get a first hand view of the kelp forests and abundant sea life, underwater at Duiker Island. Her powerful engines enable our professional crew to bring the vessel within meters of the island, for really close up views of the Cape Fur Seals in their natural environment.
