I thoroughly enjoyed my experience with Knysna RIB Adventures! It was one of, if not the, best things I have done while in Knysna. It was a very fun trip out to sea and I felt completely safe. We were able to see a variety of animals as well as the beautiful landscape..

With the usual safety briefing and advice one would expect on such a trip, we set off on what turned out to be an adventure unlike any other. Demonstrating the speed and thrill of the vessel in the estuary set the stage for an experience out of the (in)famous Knysna Heads into the Indian ocean. A strong outgoing current ensured... More

I had no idea what to expect and only got excited when I saw the boat itself. I thought "Wow, that can't be the one I'm booked on." It was! It looked super fast and didn't dissapoint. We did some amazing tricks whilst still in the lagoon to show us what the boat was capable of. Then we ventured out... More

The ocean was calm, sun shining and we saw a lot of whales, dolphins, seals and different kinds of birds. It was just a fantastic day and highly reccomendable

Wow, that was FUN and beautiful! We had a playful and FAST tour around the Knysna Lagoon - doing lots of fast doughnuts. Afterwards, we ventured through the famous Knysna heads (my first time doing this), where we saw a range of animal and bird life (including a few whales & seals). We managed to get relatively close to the... More

We made the full 2hours trip. We started on the Knysna lagoon where the boatdriver showed us the boat capabilities. Low and high speed turns. Sudden stops. Sharp turns. My whife was initially a bit affraid to go out on the ocean, but after these movements she was happy to continue. It really gives you a safe feeling. We went... More

Brett is an extremely competent sailor who cares for the safety and comfort of his clients. Each visitor will be able to comment favourably on different experiences. The birds and animals show themselves in their natural surroundings at sea, without any interference from the boat. Wonderful trip not to be missed if you have a few hours to spare.

A very professional and safe operation catering to all audiences. The rush of the fast boat is exhilarating and extremely exciting. You get to see views and a part of Knysna you wouldn't normally have a chance to see. Plenty of nature and sea life to watch which makes it a very well rounded expedition.
