[UPDATE: The Mossel Bay Zipline officially opened on January 25, 2020]
Next month, the much-anticipated zipline in Mossel Bay will open to the public. It will be the longest over-ocean zipline in the world – they’ve apparently double-checked! And, at 1100 meters (3608 feet) long, you’ll have enough time to take in the breathtaking scenery.
Mossel Bay’s new zipline over the ocean runs at speeds of up to 80km/h (50MPH) and offers unparalleled views of the cliffs, ocean and sea life. The zipline was approved by the Mossel Bay Municipality in 2017 and is set to open in February 2020 as per their website. The zipline will reportedly stretch from Point High School to the deck of the aquarium at the Point.
Over the weekend the crew tested the zipline in anticipation for the upcoming launch with local photographer Francois Boshoff onsite to capture the action. Take a look at some of his incredible shots below and be sure to check out more of his work right here.
