Customer Reviews

The trip was excellent! Definitely the highlight of all the excursions we did during the holidays. The time spent in the water was perfect, not too long but also not too short. I would however like to spend a little less time traveling slowly along side the cliffs because of motion sickness but other than that it was excellent. - Kempen Claassens

Awesome experience for the whole family - proper guides & skipper! - Grant

Brilliant experience enjoyed every moment very professional team will definetly do it again and recommend it as part of your Plett holiday. - Jacques

Amazing experience indeed! Absolutely beyond expectations.... Seals were swimming with us, very curious, so cute! Definitely a must do when visiting the Garden Route. Thanks guys! - Xtef69

The tour was already recommended to us by some German friends. And they were right, it's a fun tour worth to participate. We did the tour whilst staying in Knysna and had a great adventurous day for the whole family with our girls aged 11, 15 and 18 years. I was a fun experience for everyone. The staff is funny, but reliable and professionally experienced. - Corinna Gorriz
