We had an hour out on the rib. The owner / skipper was very informative. He has been involved in boats all his life, lives on the water front , is part of the search and rescue and races yachts so he knows these dangerous waters like the back of his hand. He makes you feel very safe. The rib... More

Awesome outing with family and new friends. Saw shy whales, penguins and curious seals and also explored some gems on that stretch of the coast. Highly recommended.

Highly recommended!!! Super fast RIB with 2 x 300bhp Suzuki outboards. We picked up speeds close to 100 kph, certainly the fastest I've been on a boat and I have have a coupe of speedboats at home. Also had some slower time for photos and the skipper pointing out facts of interest. A great way to see what Knysna has... More

Great ride. Took us all around the lagoon and over a ship wreck, then out to sea (very quickly). The guide was very witty and knowledgeable and an excellent skipper. Well worth the money. Would highly recommend

We extended out stay on the garden route to take our daughter on the RIB boat for her birthday as a surprise. We booked in advance to ensure we can go on her birthday and took the early slot to ensure a mild wind. However on the day of the surprise, the kiosk was locked and the operator only answered...

Dear sir, while we do regret that your daughter did not get the experience she so badly wanted, we had a technical issue that affected the safe performance of the vessel. Since we pride ourselves on a 100% safety record, and we take the safety of all our clients very seriously, we had to wait for the issue to be... More

If you're planning to visit Knysna for even a day or two, Knysna RIB Adventures is a must-do! We went out from the Knysna waterfront all the way to the open ocean and the Knysna Heads. Our skipper was extremely skilled and had an extensive knowledge of the Knysna Heads and surrounding area. He also paused and gave us plenty... More

Had such a cool chilled cruise around the lagoon and out to sea. We didn't go too fast cause we where the only ones on the boat and my kids are 3 and 2, but they loved it and so did mom and dad.

Our family enjoyed this ride immensely. I liked how the skipper ensured everyone's safety and comfort. His knowledge of the lagoon, the Knysna heads and the ocean beyond them, is vast and interesting. He took his time and we learnt a bit as well as enjoyed amazing surroundings. I am sure we would do this again the next time we... More

This was truly an unforgettable experience. Enjoyed every minute. The guided tour was insightful let alone the high speed thrill. Well worth the price.
