Cape Town and Cape Point Tours, Hout Bay

Hout Bay Harbour is the first scheduled stop during our Cape Point Tours. Here we enjoy a coffee break and stretch the legs a little. African markets are available here, along with boat cruises to view seals. The seal tours take approximately 45 - 60 minutes and is for the client's own account. Boat tours are available on Private Cape Point tours as the timing of this activity can sometimes be a little unpredictable.

Hout Bay means 'Bay of Wood' and is a suburb about 20 km's from Cape Town. Hout Bay has many different kinds of residents varying from the extremely wealthy to very poor. The fishermen of many years ago settled on the hills here in Hout Bay and until today they can be found in the town.

Hout Bay received it's name simply due to the fact that the early Dutch settlers in Cape Town found this area to be full of good wood and timber for construction and furniture purposes. Slaves would carry the wood over the mountain back to the city centre.

Hout Bay hosts a variety of restaurants and two hotels, along with many budget accommodation including chalets and camping spots which can be viewed during our Cape Point tours.

The Red Bull surfing contest is held here in the area during the months of May to August.

Our Cape Point Tours stop here for roughly 30 minutes which provide enough time to view the markets, grab a coffee, a toilet stop and maybe some interesting and scenic photos. From here we continue onwards to Chapman's peak.
