Sailing Yacht Knysna - 1.5 hour Short sail

  • About 2 hours


Although this is our shortest sailing cruise and excludes catering, you will still thrill at the wind in the sails and the beautiful scenery out through the Knysna Heads and along the spectacular coastline. If you love sailing, this experience offers you a little taste of everything. From the calm waters of the lagoon, through the magnificent Knysna Heads and on to the vast expanse of the open ocean, you and your family can enjoy many different aspects of a day at sea with our highly experienced crew. T

his rare opportunity to combine lagoon and sea sailing means you can feel the rush of the wind in the sails and perhaps even see dolphins and whales, and also float merrily along on the tranquil lagoon, enjoying the view. 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.

Spring tide charters and the helpful crew offer amazing cruises that depart daily from the Knysna Quays Waterfront right at 34 degrees South Restaurant and Cafe Mario.
feel special as the boat departs after the bridge is raised, daily trips including the Sunset Cruise with finger dinner and complimentary bubbly. A definite must do for any visitor to the Garden Route and Knysna.
