Full description

Join the ultimate sailing experience whilst soaking up the warm sun aboard the beautiful Outeniqua. This 2.5-hour experience departs from the Knysna waterfront and cruises through the Knysna estuary and through the rugged headlands, the beautiful passage to the extensive Indian Ocean.

Let the natural beauty of Knysna entertain you, from the breathtaking coastline to the diverse marine life, as the sails to steer us. Guests are treated to an appetizing picnic on deck composed of cheeses, fruits, savory snacks, and a complimentary glass of chilled bubbles, while you take in picturesque surroundings. All the 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 and speed, and sea swell, therefore going out through the Knysna Heads is never guaranteed.  

  • A light lunch of savoury snacks, seasonal fruits, and cheeses
  • Laliza life jacket supplied
  • Full-service cash bar & credit card facilities
  • Toilet facilities onboard
  • Additional refreshments for own account, tab payable at the end of the cruise

Nice crew. Unable to sail past Knysna Head due to strong winds. Nice sail around the lagoon though.
