What a fun thing to do...pack a picnic, your swimming Cozzies, sunblock and hats and head for the Keurbooms river and hire a boat. We went one morning early, it costs R400 for half a day and so worth it. The trip up the river is scenic and exciting...with lots of bird life and amazing mountains. The boat ride takes 1hr and you can stop off on the little sandy islands to tan and explore-at your leisure. We were so happy that we decided to do this trip...well worth it!

Excellent scenery and very informative historical commentary given by the pilot. Five minutes from Plettenberg Bay. Plenty of birds

Recently I took some friends and family with me on the River Ferries trip down the Keurbooms. I found it exceptionally informative and amazing

The boat which can seat easily up to 30 people was super clean and the Skipper Captain Russel Amazing!! He had info I could not believe. He was interactive with everyone and had a very inviting manner about him drawing even more stories from others.

We stopped for a quick picnic and potty break and headed back with yet again MORE information.

The view can not be explained....you have to experience it!!!

My husband and I took a covered ferry up the Keurbooms River. The ferry accommodates approx. 15 - 20 people. It was early December - just before the season began. We took a picnic with us and our bathing costumes. Our 'captain' was Russell. He is very knowledgeable about the fauna and flora of the valley through which the Keurbooms runs. The river was not very busy, but can get much busier in season he told us. Small beaches flanked the river where one can picnic and swim if you have hired your own boat or canoe. Russell took our small crowd to the furthest beach where we swam, picnicked and took a short walk into the forest. There is a flush toilet and also picnic tables, all spotlessly clean. We highly recommend this outing for adults & children.
