Overview
More
Ocean Image Boat Rentals is the first company that offers clients (with valid skipper’s tickets/licences) the opportunity to hire boats (inflatables, semi-rigid rubberducks, etc.) in the same manner as renting a vehicle. If our clients have a valid license to operate a boat, then they have the freedom to experience the surrounding Cape Town oceans in their own time and at their own leisure.

We went out with Ocean Image for a few days. The boats were in great condition. The staff were super friendly. We were given loads of secret spots to visit. Overall a great few days - and we all had a blast.
