The Jester was a fantastic part of Port Elizabeth's tourist offering, particularly its braai cruise around the bay at sunset, but unfortunately the owners moved the cruise to Cape Town. And we miss the cruise so much, that the move gives its ZERO RATING.

The Jester has packed up and gone to Cape Town, cruising out of Hout Bay it seems. The Jester was an awesome addition to the tourism mix in PE and a great attraction and it was sad to see them go.

My family took me on this trip as a Mother's Day treat. It was wonderful, we saw Dolphins, a shark and the food and drink was plentiful. Highly recommend it.
