It’s Father’s Day on the 16th of June and it is time to acknowledge Dad for all he does. At City Sightseeing we have decided to take advantage of the Youth day and make it possible to spoil Dad over the three-day weekend. Treat Dad and take along the kids as well for a day out to remember.
Purchase your special Father’s Day 3 FOR 1 ticket online and get a one day Classic bus ticket and a FREE harbour cruise for Dad and 2 kids. You will be encouraged to hop off at any of the over 27 exciting stops with the Hop on Hop off bus. End your day with a unique Harbour cruise that will introduce you to the working areas of the V&A harbour, up close visits with the resident seals and the best views of Table Mountain for the water.
Thanks to our partners La Parada and Tigers Milk, Dad will also receive a voucher to enjoy a free beer on the day of travel!
Redeem your voucher at La Parada at STOP 21 on Constantia Nek or STOP 1 in the Waterfront, or at Tigers Milk at STOP 5 on Long Street or STOP 8 in Camps Bay. This special runs from the 15th to the 17th of June, and is only available online, so book your tickets here!
All About The 3 FOR 1 Special
This Winter, we are running our annual 3 FOR 1 special! When you purchase 1 adult open top bus ticket, you automatically get two kids tickets for free. Those tickets are valid for between the age of 0-17 years old, and the special runs on weekends, school holidays, and public holidays. It’s perfect for Father’s Day and paired with the Father’s Day Special, it’s definitely the perfect time to see the sights.
When you’re getting ready for your day out, the standard drill for a day out on in the Mother City applies. Dress in layers, bring refreshment for your trip and keep our City Sightseeing map and timetable on hand so you don’t get left in the dark. For certain activities you may need your South African ID, so keep that safe and secure on your person.
Let Dad and his Crew Earn their Sea Legs on the Jolly Roger Pirate Cruise
At the V&A Waterfront, you’ll find our City Sightseeing STOP 1 and the main ticket office, but that’s not all the harbour has to offer. Head out to the Quay 5 and climb aboard the famous Jolly Roger Pirate ship for a 1-hour cruise on the high seas. Look out for dolphins and seals as you tour the bay, and you’ll be delighted to find a cash bar available onboard for drinks and snacks. There’s even a live performance done by the crew in their pirate gear for your entertainment.
Tickets are priced at R190 per adult, and R95 for kids under 12 years old. The boat leaves every hour on the hour, from 10 AM to 5 PM.
