Blue Rock Water Sports in Sport & Recreation
BLUE ROCK is situated on the beautiful slopes of the Helderberg Mountains, a stone's throw away from Sir Lowry's Pass, Somerset West and Gordon’s Bay.
Lake Blue Rock is the only lake in Cape Town with crystal clear water and a depth of 60 metre, which is ideal for commercial and scuba diving. In summer, the water temperature reaches up to 26°C.
The Cable (the over-head pulling system) is made for kneeboarding, waterskiing and wakeboarding but surfing on a door or barefoot skiing has been seen before too! You can either bring your own equipment or hire some out. The only requirement is that you are able to swim. It is also a popular destination for kite boarders on a windless day. For advanced riders, Blue Rock is one of the biggest obstacle parks in the world. For beginners, there are skilled instructors for assistance. Depending on the weather, night skiing is offered on a Friday evening from 7pm - 9pm. School outings are made possible with subsidised tariffs.
The Restaurant and Café has a wide variety of Mediterranean dishes for breakfast, lunch and dinner accompanied by homemade desserts. Chef, Robert Sibitz, creates special dishes for elegant dining and promotes a healthy lifestyle, cooking seasonal dishes using fresh and local produce. Blue Rock is known for its crispy thin based Pizza à la Italia and tender fillet steaks!
The Conference Centre is fully equipped with speakers, an amplifier, over head projector and wireless internet connection. It can seat up to 46 people as per cinema style, 16 as per classroom and 12 as per boardroom style.
The Badi (our beach area) is great for relaxing, tanning and socialising. For the children, there is shallow water, a children’s playground and a trampoline. Shaded areas, umbrellas and deck chairs are available for hire.
The other activities at Blue Rock are: volleyball, 6-7 metre high rock jumping point, 400 metre long fufi-slide as well as a 7 kilometre long enduro motocross track and two fenced in paintball fields (bush & obstacle) which are perfect for spectators to watch.
