See the fourth largest container port in the Southern hemisphere in action. There are twenty terminal operators. Over 4500 commercial vessels call at the port every year for loading or discharging of a variety of cargo. These ships don’t only enter for loading but also for repairs, re-fueling and surveying.
The port has a circumference of 21 km. The different docks do different jobs: City Pier stretches from The Point to Bat Center and is numbered from “A” shed to “R” shed. Here they do steel, containers, plants and fresh fruit. Island View does all kinds of liquids and Bluff does coal.
Then there is the Maydon Wharf that does everything from Sugar, Grain, Steel, Scrap metal, Wood, Paper, Fertilizer and Granite.
No doubt, the best way to view whales and dolphins up close is from a boat. However, by law, you are not allowed to approach 300m of a whale, unless you are aboard a boat permitted by the Department of Marine and Coastal Management.
Permit holders are all members of the South African Boat- Based Whale Watching Association (SABBWWA) and as such are required to adhere to a strict code of conduct and have undergone training. There are currently only two boat- based whale watching permit holders in Durban, one of which is Isle of Capri.
Join them on an exhilarating 2 hour cruise into the ocean on their boat "BAFANA" to view one of the world’s most magnificent mammals, the Humpback Whale! Every year, from June to November, whales can frequently be seen off the KwaZulu-Natal coast on their migratory route, from the Southern Oceans to the warmer tropical waters for mating and giving birth, and when they return, heading for the nutrient-rich waters of Antarctica.
The trip takes you into the Indian Ocean and close to the Mozambican current to view them at close range. Whales are enormous creatures, approximately 15m in length and weighing about 30 tons. They are very inquisitive and often perform spectacular 'breaches' - leaping out of the water, much to the delight of the passengers. If fortunate, you may see a mother feeding or playing with her calf, or siblings jumping and teasing one another, seeking their mother’s attention!
The nicest boat rides in Durban. See the ships pass meters away from the Wharf and see the very powerful tugs assist these monstrous ships in the confined space of the Maydon Wharf and Esplanade Channel. On the boat the ships pass very close to you. The pilots are disembarked from the sailing ships either by Pilot boat or Helicopter.
Each ship (longer than 20m) that enters or leaves the port MUST be assisted by a South African Pilot to ensure a safe and easy passage in and out of the port. Durban Charter boat bookings.
