Note: ROAD WORKS ARE BEING DONE IN KALK BAY, SO MAKE SURE YOU LEAVE YOUR HOTEL MUCH EARLIER IN ORDER TO ARRIVE ON TIME:

Take the M3 out going from Cape Town to Muizenberg. At the end of the free way turn left at the traffic intersection. At the end of the road, at the traffic lights, turn right onto Main Rd (M4) to Muizenberg.

The Main Rd will take you through Muizenberg, St James, Kalk Bay and Fish Hoek (you are traveling along the False Bay coast with the sea on your left hand side). At the end of the Fish Hoek main road, you will reach a large traffic circle, keep on the left to Simons Town.

Once in Simons Town, you will get the Navy buildings and a red brick wall on the left and shops on your right.

Your first road to your left will be Wharf road, which leads to the pier and has paid parking available. If you continue slightly further along the main road you will pass Jubilee Square (parking lot with palm trees)on the left, which has more paid parking available, and the next turn-off to the left will be Cole Point, which has free parking.

From the Cole Point parking lot (see triangle on map below) continue walking past the False Bay Yacht Club on your right until you get to an alley way. Follow the path through the alley way and along the waters edge past Berthas restaurant, and you will get to the pier.

The boat will be at the end of the jetty. The name of the boat is Blue Pointer 2.

AM trip: to meet on the Pier. A crew member will be there to greet you.

PM trip: meet in the bookings shop next to the post office.

If you run into any difficulties call Rob Lawrence on 0825678915.

A reminder that planes and trains dont wait, nor does the boat. It will depart sharply at 07h00. If you miss the boat, you will unfortunately be charged full rate.

( For a 06.30 departure, you will be told that the night before).

Note: ROAD WORKS ARE BEING DONE IN KALK BAY, SO MAKE SURE YOU LEAVE YOUR HOTEL MUCH EARLIER IN ORDER TO ARRIVE ON TIME:
There is one major highway out of the airport – the N2, which leads directly to central Cape Town.   Follow this road (±15 minutes) until you see signboards indicating the M3 turn-off to Kirstenbosch-Muizenberg (Landmark – big mountain straight ahead of you!)

The M3 highway at times looks like an ordinary main road with traffic lights and different road names (e.g. Edinburgh Drive) and you will travel through suburbs such as Rondebosch, Newlands and Constantia, but just keep following the signs to Muizenberg and don’t turn off until you literally reach the end of the freeway.

At the off-ramp turn left, again the sign points to Muizenberg. At the end of the road, at the traffic lights, turn right onto Main Rd (M4) to Muizenberg.

The Main Rd will take you through Muizenberg, St James, Kalk Bay and Fish Hoek (you are traveling along the False Bay coast with the sea on your left hand side). At the end of the Fish Hoek main road, you will reach a large traffic circle; keep on the left to Simons Town.
