Full description
This 45-minute adventure shows you the Knysna region's legendary and diverse estuary and all that it has to offer the coastal town of Knysna. The estuary has a compelling history, fascinating birdlife and is inhabited by 43% of South Africa's plant and animal life. View the rugged and iconic Knysna Heads, a unique sandstone formation, and the magnificent ancient caves nestled amongst the coves of this beautiful coastline. Depending on the tide, you may be able to see the famous Pacquita shipwreck found at the mouth of the Knysna Heads. An experienced skipper will also share with you information and stories about the area and how these natural formations came to be.  This trip is ideal for families and large groups.
