The ferry departs from the Robben Island Gateway at the Victoria and Alfred Waterfront. If required we can arrange transport to the V & A Waterfront.
The ferry departs every day at 09h00, 11h00 and 13h00 throughout the year. There is an additional trip at 15h00 in the Summer.
The tour includes a guided bus tour around the island and then a visit into the prison facility with an ex-political prisoner who lived there just after Mr Mandela was moved to another prison.
Private vehicle on the island can be arrange, you can expect to pay about 7-8 times more than the standard ticket price, but if you can afford it, the experience is well worth it.
