About Springtide Sailing Charters
Springtide Charters offers exclusive sailing charters aboard a sleek, custom built 50ft mono-hull yacht called 'The Outeniqua'. Cruises depart daily (weather permitting) from the popular Knysna Waterfront find our Yacht moored in the waterfront next to our brightly painted lighthouse kiosk and ticket office. After exiting the quays our yacht sets sail across the expansive Knysna estuary and out to into the ocean through the Knysna Heads. We sail parallel to the beautifully rugged Knysna coastline and depending on the sailing conditions we either head east towards the Noetzie area or west towards the Buffalo Bay area. The thrill of sailing surrounded by such show stopping scenery makes this an adventure of a lifetime.Sunset Cruises, 2,3 & 4 hour Day charters,private hire (maximum of 12 passengers).

A professional very friendly skipper and crew provided us with a nice experience in the lagune and on the ocean. The beautiful turn of nearly three hours on a calm sea and in a warm evening sun was highlited by two encounters with whales and a very lifely bunch of seals. A experience to be recommended.

We were really looking forward to the charter we booked a few weeks ahead of the trip. We were aware of the conditions which stipulated that if they did not confirm four bookings then they would cancel the trip. The issue was that the notification that our booking was voided came very late in the evening before the sailing making it impossible to book another activity. I really think that Springtide should confirm back 24 hours before if the sailing would be cancelled.

David - the captain - has just won SA sailing championship in the Finn class. A master pilot and a warm guide. His crew - Wusi - very warm and helpful. Magnificent views and surprisingly good complimentary food onboard. We had a great evening!

We spent a pleasant evening on the water. There aren't too many comfortable spots to lounge on the sailboat but we made it work. On our trip the water outside the bay was too rough so we could only go up to the heads but not through them. Despite all that we had a good time.
