High speed boat trip through Knysna heads was both exhilarating, scenic and informative. Our skipper was friendly, accommadating our requests to go faster🤗🤗However he was also safety conscious , slowed down to show us the wonderful coves and beaches around the Knysna and Brenton on Sea areas. Highly recommended !

We loved the trip and when the throttle was pushed down it was exhilarating. The cherry on top was to see the sun set out at sea.
