Welcome to Cape Town ! You have arrived at one of the most beautiful cities in the world. Majestic Table Mountain watches over the city and port. Sometimes a cloud covers the mountain – much like a table cloth. The famous “South Easter” wind often blows at gale force. Do make use of the free shuttle service to and from our Seafarers Mission. The personnel on the quay side will gladly assist you. The Mission provides a wealth of useful services including Wi-Fi, a snack bar, currency exchange and satellite Television. The Waterfront, situated near the mission, is well worth a visit. It is advisable to travel in a group and to keep valuable items near you at all times Should you have the time to go sight-seeing – the taxis outside the Mission are safe and reliable.
