Photo Caption: Sticking with nice bright primary colors. These #dolose protect one of the best kept secret spots in #capetown. It sits right next to one of the most expensive beach bars in Cape Town, but offers cheap drinks at their authentic bar and delicious burger specials. It’s a #saltyseadog kind of hangout.

The Oceana Power Boat Club is located in Granger Bay, close to the V&A Waterfront. It has provided a valuable service to boaters since it was granted the right to operate in 1974 by the then Minister of Transport. It was developed by a few founding members, headed by the late Tony Fraquet. The launch facility at the Oceana Power Boat Club caters for motorized and non-motorized watercraft including power boats, jet skis, and surf-skis. The club also caters for a wide variety of pleasure boaters, recreational fisherman, as well as commercial fisherman. In addition, the launch facility provides a vital service to a number of governmental, institutional, law-enforcement and rescue services.
During summer, the Oceana Power Boat Club slipway is used by divers to access the northern sites of the Atlantic seaboard, to reduce the distance traveled on the boat. It also has an extremely active jet-ski membership and an active surf-ski paddling community. The reason why it’s so popular, is because it’s an ideal place for launching jet skis and surf-skis regardless the weather. The launching facility is open to the public, but non-members pay a slipway fee.
While the swimming pool and braai facilities are exclusively for members, the club kitchen which offers lunches and early dinners is open to the public. The Oceana Power Boat Club is a great family orientated club, making it a perfect place to spend the weekend with your family.
