Excellent adventure with a great skipper. High speed thrill and riding the swirls was an awesome feeling. Speed thrills but this is with a unforgettable experience

A great adventure on a fast jet boat. Brett was an awesome skipper too! Saw a few seals in the water and also a good look at the cave systems. I would recommend this to anyone visiting Knysna.

It was amazing.. worth an experience on the sea waves in the small air boat.. high speed, huge waves, scenic views.. all topnotch. Forget everything else.. just do this on the waterfront... one memorable experience.

We really enjoyed ourselves on the speed boat! It felt like being on a roller coaster sometimes, I just couldn’t stop laughing! Unfortunately it was not possible to go inside the cave and we didn’t see any dolphins, but it was still worth it!

Thank Bekous

Hi, we recommend the 60 min Trip and no, this does not replace an actual walk in the Heads as the trip is water-based. We can be more accurate with our recommendation if you tell us when you intend to visit?
