I would like to thank RIB adventures for an absolutely wonderful boating and dolphin viewing experience. Never in my life have I experienced such an amazing dolphin siting. My 5 year old will forever remember this experience. The guide had a great knowledge of the area and made the trip exciting and fun! I highly recommend this to anyone looking... More

What a thrill leaving from the Waterfront in Knysna. Donovan was at the helm and the power of those motors are pretty awesome. He gave us a bit of a tour inside the Lagoon showing us a few caves then we headed out through the infamous Heads with ease. We then saw a few more caves and taken out towards... More

It has been proven several times and in several scientific journals that our vessel does not do any damage to the estuarine (it's not a lagoon), and in fact there are several other boats that do more damage with outdated engines and technology. However, there is no scientific proof nor basis in the statement that our engines causes destruction. We... More

Capt Brett is amazing at the helm. We negotiated 3 meter seas without getting wet while feeling the power of 600 horsepower. I'm definitely going to go out with these guys again.

I must start by saying the weather was perfect, allowing us to go through the heads and up close to the cliffs. It was exhilarating from start to finish. High speed, fast turns, spray and jumps. Our skipper was also very informative on the coastal geology and wildlife as well as loaded with anecdotal stories. Maybe not for the elderly... More

This is definitely one of the highlights of our month long holiday in the garden route. Our children absolutely loved it (16, 13 and 9). Great overall experience from booking to returning from the sea. Felt very safe although it is at high speed and exhilarating.

The trip was very exciting, the boat perfect to fit with a captain to control these powerful engines. We felt safe every second, even at full speed. Going thru the waves was a great memory of my own rib-experiences. Absolutely to recommend!

Wanted to do a rib tour for a long time now in SA. It was fantastic. High speed boat and the friendly guy showed us some beautiful nature too. Only thing is : put some prices on your display :) for one hour its 600ZAR. But its worth your money!

Been to Knysna many times. First time through the Heads. Thrilling and exciting way to do it and see The Heads from the other side. Thanks Donovan.
