The boat cruise leaves from Sirocco Restaurant Jetty on Thesen Island in Knysna. From here on you can just unwind and savor the warm rays of the sun, sip on a glass of bubbly or an ice-cold beer, and enjoy the scenery. Spot our Marine Giants while tanning on trampolines, put out a line to see what bites, or take a snorkel at the old shipwreck.
We will sail out to the Seal Colony and The Robberg Nature reserve – a protected area. It is one of South Africa’s most interesting, beautiful and diverse reserves and is also a national monument because of the fascinating Stone Age caves, which offer a glimpse into our ancient past. Rocks from this region date back 120 million years . The reserve is famed for its flourishing Cape fur seal colony, whales, dolphins, coastal birdlife and unique fynbos. The marine reserve also extends 1.8km offshore, providing protection to a range of vulnerable fish species. See our sightings page for a list of some of the many species you may encounter.
On our way back we will drop anchor and enjoy delicious snacks, or even a BBQ should you wish. Enquire about our unique catering packages. Our standard charters include light mezze.
