Boat Trips (1 & 2-hour)



“Umhlanga Ocean Charters” is a 7,2m hard-nose rubber duck, fitted with 2 x 85HP Yamaha motors

Our boat charters are ideal for children’s birthday parties, newlyweds, corporate team building groups, and pensioner’s day trips. Our youngest passengers need to be at least 5 years of age for reasons of safety.

Our 1 & 2-hour Boat Trips offer a scenic perspective of the Durban Coast and skyline, an opportunity to view a range of sea birds and marine life, and an educational insight into the ocean and its inhabitants. Most marine activity is encountered close to shore, near the shark nets and in the vicinity of surrounding ships. Marine sightings are not a guarantee; however, we do have good sightings all year round. The skipper will certainly do his best to ensure you have an exciting and memorable trip.

Our departure times vary according to the weather. Chat with us and let us know what you have in mind.



All passengers need to be at the meeting point at least 30 minutes prior to departure time.

We operate all year round except on Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Years Day.

As safety comes first, in the event of bad weather; a charter may be postponed or rescheduled at the sole discretion of the skipper.
