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 ;)

We booked the sunset cruise and the weather played along well and allowed us to pass through the Iconic Knysna Heads into the open ocean. The cruise is expertly done, fun and an awesome way to view the picturesque views that Knysna has to offer....More
This is best way to spend an afternoon on this magnificent coast! Unfortunately Mother Nature did not provide any wind over 4 knots so sailing did not take place, but we motorized out beyond the Heads and had a fabulous time despite the lack of...More
Thank you guys for making our sail so memorable. Unfortunately for the weather as we did not manage to leave the Estuary and sail out into the big wide sea, but I think the skipper was quite right in making his choice and sticking to...More
