I had a wonderful time getting near the caves and seeing all the beautiful nature, and of course the weather was lovely too! I definitely love being on... More

This was such an enjoyable and exhilarating trip, especially with the sunset finale. Going at a sedate pace in the estuary, skipper Chris hit the throttle as we passed between the Heads and off we went, the twin engines driving us through and over the waves. Chris is a great man to have at the helm, an experienced sailor with... More

Very safe and professional. We took an hours tour around the knysna lagoon and heads. Beautiful scenery. The boat takes you places you can't reach by foot. The kids loved and so did we.

But most off all we had a great time jumping on the waves enjoying the beautiful view on the coastline. Definately a recommendation when you would like a adventurous... More

High speed boat trip through Knysna heads was both exhilarating, scenic and informative. Our skipper was friendly, accommadating our requests to go faster🤗🤗However he was also safety conscious , slowed down to show us the wonderful coves and beaches around the Knysna and Brenton on Sea areas. Highly recommended !

We loved the trip and when the throttle was pushed down it was exhilarating. The cherry on top was to see the sun set out at sea.
