No words to describe how special this was. If you've never done it before, add it to your bucket list. We had a fantastic cruise through the Knysna heads. We had good food and a perfect sunset. Fantastic!!! Would love doing it again. Worth it!!!

We had a great day on the boat thanks to beautiful weather and an awesome skipper/crew. we had good luck spotting a bride whale from some distance (~200m) and close encounters with a group of dolphins (100 @ 5-100m). the lunch was also delicious ;)
