Sailing Yacht Knysna - 2.5hr Sunset Cruise + Finger Dinner


Activity Description

Join us for the ultimate sailing experience whilst soaking up the golden hues of the Knysna sunset. This 2.5 hour experience departs from the Knysna waterfront and cruises through the Knysna estuary and through the rugged headlands, our beautiful passage to the extensive Indian Ocean. Let the natural beauty of Knysna entertain you, from the breath-taking coastline to the diverse marine life, as we allow our sails to steer us. Our guests are treated to an appetizing Mediterranean platter and complimentary glass of chilled South African Cap Classique MCC, while you watch the sun sink into the horizon. 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.

Customer Reviews

super Wind, super Segeltour die Crew und der Skipper waren sehr freundlichen Getranke und Essen waren reichlich und sehr schmackhaft - Franke Thomas

The sunset cruise was fantastic! Knowledgable, friendly and helpful crew. Amazing boat to take in the beautiful scenery, delicious snacks and we were lucky enough to see dolphins. Would highly recommend - Natalie Bligh

This was one of the highlights of our stay in Knysna. Our lodgings recommended this trip and the booing process was simple and clear. We booked the sunset cruise and Nick was an excellent host for the small group of 4 on our trip. Sadly the clouds didn’t play ball so the sunset didn’t happen but close sightings of whales and dolphins were amazing. Some nice snacks and drinks and good company on the sail made this trip very memorable. - Alan Mummery

We throughly enjoyed the cruise... the only disappointment was that we were not able to go our further than the heads... understandably... as conditions were not favourable... the crew were great... most enjoyable and highly commendable...thanks to all who made it happen. - Karen Viljoen

Absolutely Amazing!! Thank you so much for making me and my husband's first experiencing on a boat on the water unforgettable... Loved every minute def a must for everyone to do.... We hope to do something like this soon again. Thank you so much to the Captain and Crew for making our sail soooo smooth!! You guys rock!! - Natasha Jafta
