Although every charter on the TIGGER 2 is a special occasion, we do offer a very private, exclusive charter for "one couple only" for those extra special occasions such as a wedding proposal, an engagement celebration dinner, an intimate birthday surprise or an anniversary.
The cruise departs from the V&A Waterfront and the couple experience magnificent scenic views as we cruise along the beautiful Cape Coastline with Table Mountain, Lions Head and Signal Hill as a backdrop. The route will be either into Table Bay towards the east coast of Robben Island or hugging the coastline to the well known Clifton 4th Beach to ensure we have the best vantage point from which to watch the sunset. As the sun sinks into the horizon, we present the couple with some light snacks and crack open the method cap classique sparkling wine.

Why not plan a romantic evening or Valentines
Day evening where you invite other couples or,
if you are single why not organise a singles
night… The Setting: Candle light, rose
petals and fresh flowers, soft background music
and a warm, comfortable, cosy environment… a
roaring fire would be great. The Food: A fantastic
idea is to host a chocolate fondue night. Everyone
brings some wine and you organise the food. Don’t
worry, this doesn’t involve hours of slaving
away in the kitchen. Begin the evening with an
assortment of cheeses, wine and crackers. This
gets the evening going and creates anticipation
for the chocolate delight that is to come. Think
of all the foods that go well with chocolate… strawberries,
grapes, nougat, honeycomb, marshmallows… and
whatever tantalises your taste buds. When hosting
an evening such as this why not impress your
guests and hire a chocolate fountain. The chocolate
fountain makes it very easy to dip your delicious
treats and adds a sense of fun to the evening.
The Cape has an assortment of beautiful settings
that provide the perfect backdrop for sipping
on delicious cocktails. At the end of the day
why not surprise your partner by taking them
for some refreshing cocktails. It’s great
to be surprised every now and then and this
is such a fantastic to watch the sun setting
on the horizon. Warm summer evenings are the
ideal time to go for cocktails. After some
mouth watering, juicy delights take a moonlit
stroll on Camps Bay beach. If you plan on going
home for more cocktails, give this one a try:
Flirtatious Lovers Potion - 2 Fresh Strawberries
- 4 Fresh Raspberries - 1 Shot Spiced Rum -
1 teaspoon Powdered Sugar - Sweetened Cream.
Macerate strawberries and raspberries with
rum and sugar. Slightly whip cream. Swirl together
1/3 rum-berry puree with 2/3 slightly whipped
cream in a champagne flute. Garnish with berries.

Picnics are a very romantic way of spending time
with each other. The natural beauty of the
Cape surroundings supply the setting, what’s
important for you is the planning. Preparing
a picnic doesn't have to be a daunting task
and there are a few things that, if packed,
make it look very professional. What we have
found through experience is that things that
are easy to eat and prepare such as cheese
and crackers, muffins, grapes, strawberries
(always big points for the romantic), chips
and dips etc... always work well. You don't
want to arrive and share a rack of ribs or
macaroni cheese. A bottle of wine or champagne
adds to the romantic occasion and for something
non-alcoholic bring along a chilled fresh fruit
juice. When organising your picnic basket the
utensils you bring with are very important.
Most people will be too worried about the food
and forget something like the corkscrew (I'm
sure you will look very impressive pushing
the cork into the bottle with your finger).
Make yourself a list beforehand and check that
you have the following: 1. A sharp knife (NOT
a plastic one) 2. A corkscrew / bottle opener
3. Plates (2 proper side plates are always
better than cardboard or plastic plates) 4.
Glasses (NOT Styrofoam cups) 5. A picnic blanket.
Extras that show you have put thought into
it: - Put some ice cubes into a flask, this
way they stay frozen for longer - Bring some
small or inflatable pillows for extra comfort.

- Carriage Rides
A horse drawn carriage ride for two with champagne
is always well received. There is something very
romantic about the idea of taking a carriage
ride together. It allows you to cuddle up close
and experience something which is very different
to your average date. Perhaps it’s the
sense of old fashion courtship that creates a
romantic occasion or the thrill of doing something
completely different. Purchase some delicious
chocolates and make a personalised card inviting
your partner on a carriage ride through the Cape
Town gardens. Enjoy the surroundings and company
with a bottle of bubbly. Once the carriage ride
is over why not head off to your favourite restaurant
where you have already made a booking or go back
to your place and prepare your date a candle
lit dinner that will tantalise their taste buds.

and Dine - Wine Farm/s
Another romantic activity we would suggest is
to Wine and Dine at one of the Cape's historic
wine farms. There are an abundance of wine farms
on various routes, so you are sure to find one
that offers a romantic setting. Wine tasting
can add a real sense of fun and provide a great
atmosphere to the beginning of the date. Do your
homework before the date and read up a little
about the wine estate you are visiting. This
way you will be able to add some insight to the
tasting and show that you put some though into
where you took your partner. You don't need to
be a wine connoisseur to enjoy the wines on offer;
it’s the pleasure of the company that’s
important. Usually you will be given a lesson
of the wine you taste, either by the person doing
the tasting demonstration or on a supplied leaflet.
Some descriptions will be statements like "tastes
of juicy ripe apricots" or "tastes
of freshly cut grass" - (not that we know
what that tastes like) but don't worry if you
can't make these out, you are there to enjoy
yourself. After the wine tasting take a stroll
through the vineyards to work up an appetite
before your lunch/dinner. If your legs are feeling
a bit wobbly after the wine tasting take a seat
beneath a shady tree overlooking the vineyards
before you make your way to the restaurant. (Make
sure you have a booking at the Winelands restaurant).
It’s also a good idea to find out what’s
on the menu before hand. Give the restaurant
a call to make sure you and your partner will
like what’s on the menu, particularly to
see if they have your partner’s favourite
dessert. (If not maybe they can make it for you)

the senses - Self
Delight the senses - Self pampering experience.
Before the day, why not surprise your partner
with a personalised card that invites them to
join you for a days pampering. Make the card
yourself with a short message of why you believe
they deserve to be pampered. It adds an exciting
build up to the special day. It’s also
a good idea to plan ahead and organise a joint
pampering session for both of you to enjoy together.
There are many facilities that offer you; Aromatherapy
Massages, Indian Head Massages, Facials, Body
Wraps… the list is endless. Something
that will impress your partner is if you put
a lot of thought into what treatment you choose.
An example of this would be if your partner sits
in front of a computer all day you could organise
a back and neck massage to relieve any tension
or if they have a very stressful job, an Indian
head massage will help them to relax. The choice
is yours. The pampering session creates a peaceful
and relaxing setting where you can spend some
intimate time together.
