We booked for an early evening cruise to the Heads and arrived early, so were amongst the first people to board. We headed upstairs and got a round table for 2 by the window. We were pleasantly surprised by the nice decor and well spaced tables with waiter service. We had a bottle of wine with some tasty samosas, enjoyed... More

We have a whole boat for ourselves - obviously, people were afraid of rain - but this is an attraction exactly for the rainy evening! Fresh (although small, No.4) oysters, good food, wine - and pleasant water of the bay.

Went on the sunset cruise- was a beautiful experience! The view is stunning - there's wine and food on board and the service is excellent. Definitely worth a visit!

Out with good friends on the paddle cruiser was an extremely pleasant way to end our day in Knysna. Drinks on the upper deck was served by friendly staff, be it a bit slow when everyone first comes on board; followed by a lovely 3 course buffet in the lower deck. We were lucky enough to sit at the Captain's... More

A basic lagoon tour out toward the lagoon entrance with a hot buffet lunch. The food was good and plentiful. The staff were friendly and overall very nice cruise. My wife has food allergies and they were happy to help her.

Our trip finished in Knysna and we had planned to take this boat trip as part of our last few days, we tried to book tickets to be told it was not running for a few days, no explanation, no apology! Very dissapointed.

The Paddle Cruiser always makes a great photograph and I've often wondered what the experience is like. Cruising the beautiful Knysna lagoon is always a winner. A bit windy and chilly going towards the heads but warm and sunny on the return. Pity about the smoking allowed on the outside area. The staff is very friendly and efficient and the... More

We were really looking forward to a sunset cruise whilst having dinner and a glass of wine or two but it could not have been further from a romantic meal... And we are not particularly fussy people. The staff were amazing, perhaps the only saving grace along with the views(if you could get near a window), they were so helpful... More

We loved every minute of it. We were unfortunately with a bunch of rude Dutch tourists but the staff looked out for us, and while our companions didn't notice nature at all, we were told wonderful stories by the staff and the chef, and seemed to be the only ones noticing the heads. We had an absolute fantastic time. The... More
