Vaal River Boat Cruises

Boat Cruises from the Stonehaven Harbour

Stonehaven runs a fleet of luxury Vaal Boat River Cruises from the Stonehaven Harbour and proudly boasts SAMSA (South African Maritime Safety Association) Certificates for all of their Vessels. Before you book a cruise on any inland waters in South Africa, make sure the Operator is able to show you SAMSA certificates. It is now compulsory for all Commercial Cruiser operators to have these safety certificates – if they do not, the safety of the vessel you are using is not assured and there will be no public liability cover on these vessels either. Let us know if you would like us to forward a copy of Stonehaven’s cruiser certificates to you.

Stonehaven’s forte is the great attention to detail, so all of the river cruise prices include personalized printed full coloured menus and welcome sign's, charming table settings with your choice of colour scheme and table centre-pieces. Unique Wedding Ceremonies & Receptions and Conferences can be hosted on board besides Private and Corporate Marine Dining.
