Last minute booking for this fun boat trip. The tour was informative enough without overcrowding you.. Really enjoyed the trip. You will go all the way to buffels bay and back. About 30km. Also a good adrenaline rush when the boat goes fast. Really fun!...More

Superb experience, great views of Kynsna Heads with very knowledgeable skipper. Managed to see a pod of Humpback Dolphins feeding in the surf. Would highly recommend as part of a visit to Knysna.

Capt Brett is amazing at the helm. We negotiated 3 meter seas without getting wet while feeling the power of 600 horsepower. I'm definitely going to go out with these guys again.

The trip was very exciting, the boat perfect to fit with a captain to control these powerful engines. We felt safe every second, even at full speed. Going thru the waves was a great memory of my own rib-experiences. Absolutely to recommend!
