What an awesome experience. The skipper was brilliant, it got choppy on the way back and I felt perfectly comfortable having him up front. Our teenagers loved it and we couldn't get over how many dolphins we experienced up so close, if you had put your hand out you would have touched them. We took it in turns as there... More

Don took us through the heads and close some caves and cliffs ...this was amazing. The speed and power of this... More

Decided to have a bit of speed during our slow holiday and myself and my daughter went out on the boat. The boat is in a great condition and very comfortable even at high speed. The sea was quite rough but the skipper was excellent and we ended up in a pod of feeding dolphins where we waited and watched... More

We loved this experience. The boat was good quality with decent seats and bars to hold on to and although I had been apprehensive about the trip it felt very safe. The skipper was obviously very experienced. We were lucky enough to see loads of dolphins and the speed of the boat was exhilarating and exciting. One warning is that... More

Had an awesome time power-boating around the lagoon then out through Knysna Head to ride the ocean waves. Great views of the hidden coastline close to the heads. A fun safe ride that everyone enjoyed. The young lady at the ticket office was very polite and friendly, and our skipper gave good commentary between the fast thrills.

Awesome trip out, through the heads out into the open sea. Kids had a great time, felt completely safe with all the speed and bouncing around.
