Summer in Durban is a time for sun-drenched festivity. During the busy December period, people flock from all corners of South Africa to take advantage of the warmest place to be. Now that everybody’s back at work and all the kids have started another busy year at school, Durbanites can cautiously emerge to reclaim the coast for various leisure activities. These, of course, vary in terms of scale and splendour.

When it does get slightly too hot, one sure way to cool off is by spiriting away on a calm ocean breeze. Perhaps the greatest way to view our unique city is by cruising past the skyline at sunset. The Spirit of eLan has completed this voyage on many occasions. A well-stocked bar accompanies every cruise, with beverages available through cash and Zapper payments. Friends and family will love this 20-person capacity catamaran. Business charters have also proven to be very successful. A new example relating to this is eLan-hosted Mauritian Style cruises. These will be aimed at potential investors who have expressed an interest in investing in Mauritius, with specific dates to be co-ordinated and announced in the near future.

Our capable crew can cater fishing charters and leisure cruises with equal measures of ingenuity. They can braai a steak with just as much skill and commitment as they display when handling fishing rods and navigating tides. To aid these men in giving clients the best possible experience, the Spirit of eLan comes equipped with the following amenities:

  • Fishing rods and tackle
  • Microwave
  • Fully stocked scullery including plates, platters, glassware etc)
  • Surround sound (No USB, only Aux/ CD facility only)
  • Cockpit and saloon area
  • Small cash bar available
  • Spacious flybridge
  • Gas braai (only available for over 3-hour charters)

ANNOUNCEMENT: Every Wednesday this summer, the Spirit of eLan is open to individual bookings! It costs R300 per person for a stunning 2-hour sundowner cruise, from 5-7pm. This includes a welcome drink and snacks, with a cash bar available on board.

So, start your year off right by breaking away from the traditional. Make your 2019 one to remember with the Spirit of eLan. Sea you there.
