Cycle Tour update

What a fabulous day! And what a blessing for the perfect weather! During my cycle I heard many people comment on how beautiful our coastline is. Especially Hout Bay, where Chapmans Peak starts to eat at the muscle fibres in the legs, the beauty of Hout Bay seems to give people the distraction and inspiration[…]

Good enough to be used in Antarctica

So, on our way to our latest charter we see that MCM (Marine and Coastal Management) have been inspired by us and the LEGENDARY ZANGETSU.It was enough to give the members of Conquest Charters Marine and Tourism a warm fuzzy feeling. In summary they have a Gemini Wave Rider 850 with two Honda 225 engines[…]

End of year run

The end of year brings the TEAM together and there are many ideas thrown around on how to spend your day with the TEAM before you leave and enjoy your own holiday.

GO BIG OR GO HOME… we go forward

Cape Town “2008” was awesome! We saw our fleet double from one to two boats. The slow build of “Zangetsu” was worth the wait! The awesome 8.5m Gemini really performs well and is more than capable of handling the rough seas around Cape Town (although we prefer NOT to test those capabilities). The weather was[…]
