We really enjoyed our sail. Simon and Neil were very friendly and made us feel at home.
We saw dolphins and seals very close up.
The catamaran was great for lounging and enjoying the views.
Safety good. Seen everything there is to sea. Friendly people making bookings and on board.
We have sailed with Ocean Sailing Charters twice, and both times were great. Excellent staff, great service every time.. The most enjoyable part for us is the nature surrounding the lagoon. Lots of gorgeous bird life and dramatic scenery. We would be happy to not have music play and enjoy the sounds of nature, but understand that the usual folks like to have a 'party vibe' and with that, it's better to book a group big enough to exclude having to sail with random people on board, but we have not had the opportunity to do this yet and look forward to sailing with the team again in the near future.
A must do in Knysna!
Extremely friendly staff, a beautiful boat and the perfect setting.
Regardless of our group of 4 being the only booking, Ocean Sailing Charters was willing to take us out on their amazing catamaran for a relaxing afternoon. Super accommodating and professional! 10/10
Our skipper on the Bellavita was very friendly. Thank you for contributing to making our Garden route visit amazing. We will definitely be back again!
We had the most incredible afternoon on board ocean rhythm. The crew were exceptionally professional, friendly and attentive. I would highly recommend booking a sunset cruise. This was a definite highlight of our weekend in Knysna.
