It was the original Port Captain's Office built in 1882. The pointed Gothic window surrounds the structure with a clock, imported from Edinburgh, as a main feature. The red walls are the same colour as they were in the 1800's, having been carefully matched to scrapings of the original paint.
On the ground floor is a tidal gauge mechanism which was used to check the level of the tide for ships entering or leaving the docks. On the second floor there is a decorative mirror room which allowed the captain to view of harbour activities.
The tower was a focal point in the Victoria & Alfred Waterfront's urban renewal, since when it has become South Africa’s most-visited destination.
