Great evening on the Indian Ocean

Booked sunset outing from Uk before we arrived in Knysna. Boat was skippered by Nick, really great few hours. Beautiful coast line. Very pleasant way to spend a few hours with sparkling wine and very good finger platter on our return to shore. If weather good definitely recommend.

Great sailing trip with whale watching. The skipper is very experienced and super personable. The subsequent meal on the boat with sparkling wine was a successful conclusion to this unforgettable experience.

This was such a beautiful experience, friendly and caring stuff. The captain was nice and showed us dolphins. The team came prepared with blankets because it does get a bit chilly. The food after the trip was delicious and enough. I would definitely recommend it
