Activities in Cape Town

Blue Rock Activities include:

Cable-system

logoThe overhead cable system was designed and installed by Rixen Cableways that is situated in Germany.

It consists of 5 towers and is about 800m long all the way around.

Blue Rock uses an overhead cable system with an electronic motor winch that pulls skiers around the lake.
This system is safe, user- and environmentally-friendly (using no petrol). Skilled water-ski instructors are always in attendance and you do not need to be of a particular age, sporty or fit to enjoy the skiing to have the time of your life!
The only requirement is that you are able to swim.

Cable Waterskiing is a unique way to ski without the use a motorboat yet with the same feeling and experience.

Blue Rock Lake is the only clear water lake in the Western Cape with water temperatures reaching up to 26 degrees. Cable Waterskiing is a much more social sport than skiing behind a boat as up to 10 people can be skiing at the same time and watch you up close.

While the boat produces waves which you would use for height when doing tricks, Cable riders need to use the tension of the rope when trying out tricks.

The system can increase its running speed so that you may ski barefoot or slalom on our cable. Bookings need to be made in advance for this as the cable generally runs at about 30 kilometers per hour to accommodate the most frequent cable riders: wakeboarders, kneeboarders & waterskiers.

WAKEBOARDING

Wakeboarding is a fast growing sport on the Cable. Most people start off with the kneeboard or with the waterskis before they turn to wakeboarding. It is a great way to get a feeling for the cable.

KNEEBOARDING

Kneeboarding and waterskiing are perfect ways to start off with and are ideal for all ages. Kneeboarding is particularly loved by children because it is the easiest from all disciplines – kneeling on the board and holding onto the handle is not only easy but loads of fun.

WATERSKIING

Waterskiing is almost as easy as kneeboarding and a perfect way to start learning. Waterskiing is a bit more elegant and graceful yet still tons of fun!!!

OBSTACLE PARK

Activities at Blue Rock includes one of the largest obstacle courses in the world! It consists of kickers, sliders, rooftops, fun box and many more to enhance your experience! The latest & newest obstacles, imported from Germany, have been setup for  you to show off your stunts & moves on. Helmets must be worn at all times when hitting one of these obstacles.

GREAT TRAINING FOR KITE SURFERS

The Cable has proven to be an excellent training spot for kiters.  For beginners, it’s perfect to train their board skills without being challenged by the wind.  For advanced riders, it gives them the opportunity to ride when there is no wind.

RENTING EQUIPMENT

We offer kneeboards, skis, wakeboards, mono-skies, slalom skies and discs. Nevertheless, you are welcome to bring your own equipment. We also rent out long and short wetsuits to keep you nice and warm on the cooler days. Life Jackets are compulsory on the Blue Rock lake and will be provided free of charge.

This is the deepest and cleanest lake in the Western Cape. Blue Rock is a perfect venue for diving as it is one of the only lakes in South Africa with crystal clear water which reaches up to 26C.

The deepest point of the lake is 60 meters which is ideal for free, commercial and scuba diving.
