One of South Africa’s most attractive heritage places, Robben Island will be out of bounds today.
The ferries are expect to be back up and running by next week.
Reports say all trips to the historic landmark were suspended after the main ferry experienced gear box problems.
All emergency ferries are also said to be out of commission.
Robben Island council said they are still waiting for new parts to arrive from overseas, but have reassured those who have already paid that they will be reimbursed.
