What to Expect

The boat sets off at 6 pm from the Sea Coach docking bay. As the John Bennett leisurely rides towards the east, you get a unique view of the diverse city-scape. You pass by churches, mosques, and typical Freetownian houses with colored roofs that cover the flowing hills. Cotton trees and tropical palms pop out in between the buildings.

By sunset, the sea is hulled in a myriad of pastels, casting a soft ambiance over the coastal city. It takes an hour before it gets entirely dark, leaving enough time to observe the sea traffic. You can see the Turkish Powership in action, Chinese fishing ships collect the day’s catch, and local wooden boats going towards the shore. As the sky turns a darker blue the you reach the port of Freetown, showing off its proud cranes illuminated by bright industrial lights.

Meanwhile, there is enough entertainment on the cruise boat itself. It holds about 30 people, which allows for an intimate yet large enough group to get a party vibe. Local snacks are served, oldies play in the background, and those who like alcohol take out their cans and bottles to quench their thirst. Do bring those yourself, as these are not part of the package.

Upon returning to the western area, the boat takes a detour to the bustling Lumley beach. The hotel, bar and restaurant lights contrasted to the dark sea give a beautiful last sight of the trip.
