Marking this meeting place are two towering sandstone cliffs known as the Knysna Heads.

Enjoy this spectacular 1.5-hour sightseeing cruise, that takes you across the Knysna Lagoon and out to sea through the Knysna Heads to explore the coves, caves and bays of our rugged and beautiful coastline. With your local, professional guide, experience the highlights from the geological characteristics and the biodiversity of Knysna’s estuarine and marine environment. Get a chance to often see marine life in your shared group, with no more than 25 people. Choose from one of three departure times when you book.

Depart from the Thesen Island harbor town, right in the center of Knysna, at your selected time. Check in at reception to meet your guide, and get prepared for the trip. The vessels are boarded by means of a walk-on Jetty, and boats depart and make their way across the Knysna estuary in the direction of the Knysna Heads, which is the opening out to sea. Once out at sea the skipper heads along the coastline towards Brenton, on sea and Buffalo Bay, highlighting the incredible coastline, needle caves and shoreline. 
Depending on the conditions the trip heads along the stretch of coastline or will head out to sea, various indicators such as diving birds and other disturbances on the ocean are signs of possible marine life such as, pods of dolphins, or whales. This means that there is no set course or direction that the trip takes and is determined by the skipper and the conditions on the day. 
Return back to Thesen Island approximately 1.5-hours after your selected time. 

What will you see on your trip?

Apart from the incredibly beautiful coastline you may see the following:

The Knysna coastline’s year-round resident whales are the Bryde’s and Minke whales, which are spotted throughout the year, and then of course the "Rock star’s" migrating Southern Right and Humpback whales, which season spans from April through till December. The shy and endangered Indo-Pacific Humpback dolphin, Bottle-nose and Common dolphins, Cape Fur seals, sharks, a variety of beautiful pelagic bird species and much more!

This 4 hour leisure cruise takes you out the Heads to spend some quality time out in the Indian Ocean. Experience the thrill of sailing as you cruise over the Knysna lagoon, through the impressive Knysna Heads and out into the open ocean on our luxurious 50ft mono-hull yacht. This sailing experience is paired with a gourmet lunch platter so that you can truly savour the moment in style. The Knysna coastline is one of the gems of the Garden Route so make the most of it with this exclusive sailing charter. 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.

Our 4 Hour Day Sail departs at 10am for a minimum of 6 pax. Guests are required to check-in 15min before departure time at our kiosk at Knysna Waterfront where our 50ft mono-haul yacht, the Outeniqua is moored adjacent to Dry Dock restaurant. Before boarding we require guests to sign on the indemnity form and remove their shoes. Once everyone is aboard and ready to go we depart from the waterfront and make our way across the estuary towards the Knysna Heads. Drinks can be ordered from the crew who will keep you entertained and informed about the beautiful area and the interesting history that it has to offer. Just before we proceed through the Knysna heads our crew will assist with life jackets that will be worn during the duration of the trip out at sea. Our aim is to sail and if the wind, sea and weather conditions are in our favor we will deploy our sails and let the wind carry us through the big blue. Keep your eyes peeled for any activity on the ocean we are often spoiled with amazing sightings of dolphins, seals, penguins, bird life and even whales! After an enjoyable sail out at sea our skipper will return to the Knysna estuary where we will remove life jackets. Our crew will proceed to set up our aft deck to serve a scrumptious light lunch (can be catered to dietary requirements on request) while you sit back and take in the views of picturesque Knysna estuary. Our skipper will slowly take you back in to the waterfront where we will moor and say our goodbyes. Our crew will take payment for any extra drinks that have been purchased during trip at this point.
