The Miller's Point public slipway is mostly used by divers during winter when diving in False Bay is at its peak, due to the prevalence of heavy south westerly swell on the west facing coastlines and the absence of strong south easterly winds. The slipway is owned by the City of Cape Town, and is also used by recreational and commercial fishing boats, which leads to some conflicts of interests and occasional unpleasantness.
