I, along with my wife and four friends, thoroughly enjoyed this trip. It was the first "event" of our two week trip to South Africa, and got us off to a great start. Apart from the exhilaration of the boat journey itself, over the waves of the Knysna Heads, we were priviledged to see hundreds of dolphins (the sea was... More

A late start was more than compensated for by an extended trip to sea. Brett is highly competent and very sensitive to the wishes of his passengers (in this case a sedate group of birders who preferred dawdling to donuts). I especially enjoyed the seat design, which allows one to brace onseself securely with legs and back. It's an outstanding... More

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..
