If you enjoy sailing, this experience, followed by a delicious lunch, is the perfect way to bring a little luxury into your Knysna adventure. This activity also provides an ideal way to view the spectacular scenery and marine life of the world-renowned Garden Route coastline. The route takes you over the Knysna lagoon, through the impressive Knysna Heads and out into the true freedom of the open ocean.
After a magnificent sail, we return to the calmer waters of the Knysna Estuary and serve a delicious feast of Mediterranean style cuisine. All our trips are ocean going trips and are weather and sea conditions dependent. Only the skipper of the vessel can make a judgement call on these conditions which are determined on the day of the charter. Conditions are influenced by tide, wind direction & speed and sea swell, therefore going out through the Knysna Heads is never guaranteed.
Please note that while this is considered an adult activity, children are welcome on board under the supervision of their parents at all times. Since we are limited to a carrying capacity of only 12 passengers, children are charged full fare. Minimum of 4 guests required to run this trip.
If the minimum number of guest have not been reached by the time of the service, the trip will either be cancelled or guests are welcome to pay the minimum fee equivalent to 4 adult tickets to proceed with trip.
