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 this size.
Cruise lengths will range between one and a half and two hours, beginning with 4 cruises a day.
Bookings are now open to experience their bubbly brunch, lunch, sunset, high tea (on Saturdays only) or dinner cruises.
The Alba will also cater for private functions such as corporate outings, weddings or gala events.
