South African Coastline Surfari Cruises, is a mobile camping surfari, changing destination every few days. Starting in the world-famous Cape Town, this adventure will take you past the best surfing spots in South Africa, ending in the surfer’s paradise Jeffreys Bay. Each campsite is on the beach with one house stay that is less than 1km away. Privately owned minivan transportation throughout.

 

There will be two staff members accompanying each trip who will provide 24-hour support. We welcome any surfers over 18 who are up for having a great holiday. When not out surfing, you can enjoy beach games, card games and hikes in your free time. There are also activity excursions that can be organized such as kayaking up rivers, tubing down rapids, bungee jumping, and chasing waterfalls – to name a few.

 

Each trip can hold up to 5 people. The trips are conducted once a month all year round. The surf breaks we visit are aimed towards intermediate surfers and above. Therefore, we do not recommend this trip for beginner surfers. There is WiFi available throughout the whole trip, laundry is also available.

 

Every day there is a delicious breakfast and dinner provided. We cater to all types of foodies whether it be vegetarian or vegan. Lunch will be at your own expense and each day there will be either an excellent local restaurant or self-catering choice available.

 

The ‘party days’ are all dependent on the group and the group’s vibe. For those that want, there is ample opportunity for some beers whilst chatting and listening to music around the campfire. At several of the stops, there is also the option to visit some nearby bars for a few drinks in the evening if desired.

THE ACCOMMODATION

South African Coastline Surfari Cruises

 

The accommodation is made up of a series of campsites along the stunning South African Eastern Coastline.

THE ACTIVITIES

Surf

The surf breaks we visit are aimed towards intermediate surfers and above. Therefore, we do not recommend this trip for beginner surfers.

 

Still Baai: point break not even a kilometer away. Here the ocean does pull you left away from the break, but the paddling is worth it for the great waves.

Victoria Bay (Vic Bay for short): The bay is a righthand point break and can run for over 100 meters.

Plettenberg Bay (Plett for short): There are many world-class breaks in this area and there will nearly always be a wave working no matter what conditions are like.

St Francis Bay: There is also a right-hand point break which can run for over 200 meters and is a great wave for all.

Jeffreys Bay: the most famous surfing spot along the way, is world class. One of the breaks is even featured on the World Surfing League Tour.
