We did the morning cruise and the staff were really good. Went with Gran and teenagers. All enjoyed it thoroughly and we managed to go through the Heads, which was a bonus. The skipper was very entertaining and made all of us feel at ease.

The cruise on this catamaran is a must do. The crew are very good and helpful. The skipper Leon really knows his trade. The snacks on this cruise are very, very good and you can never finish it all. Served with ice cold drinks.

If in Knysna you have to take a cruise around the lagoon. We chose the catamaran as it takes only 12 people and can go through the Heads into the Indian Ocean if sea conditions are right. It is possible to go at sunset and...More
