The Alba will be a first of its kind and the only fine dining restaurant boat in Cape Town, taking guests on a tour through the fishing industry and yacht harbour in the V&A Waterfront. It measures 22 metres in length with a six metre beam and will have a capacity of 72 seated guests or 100 for cocktail functions.


It has been designed to be stable and smooth in the water, with floor to ceiling glass windows, which will ensure a comfortable dining experience with great views regardless of the weather. Additionally, the Alba is fully compliant with the safety regulations of the South African Maritime Safety Authority (SAMSA) and the captain and crew are seasoned veterans, fully qualified to handle a vessel of its size.


Cruise lengths will range between one and a half and two hours, beginning with four cruises a day. However, we will also cater for private functions such as corporate outings, weddings or gala events. Sample menus featuring seasonal, locally sourced ingredients are available for your perusal but we are happy to tailor-make a menu for you.
