The Robben Island Museum has a new ferry.
Named after the first recorded female political prisoner on Robben Island, Krotoa, the new ferry arrived on July 12 and increases passenger carrying capacity to the island by 270 visitors.
Ellerick Olckers, Visitor Operations specialist at Robben Island Museum says it was important that they increase capacity before the summer tourist season.
“It is of critical importance that we prepare for peak periods months in advance. We would like to proactively prepare to avoid situations where we are caught on the back foot that may detract from visitors’ experience of the Island,” said Olckers.
