“Awesome sea adventure!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 December 2013

We thoroughly enjoyed our trip with Knysna RIB Adventures! With 500hp on a brand new boat and Brett behind the wheel we felt totally safe while doing exhilarating high speed turns, going through the Knysna heads, over the swells and touring the caves and coastline.

This adventure is well, well worth the money for people of all ages. The kids loved the speed and being in the waves and the adults really enjoyed Brett's informative comments on the surroundings, topography, animals and bird life.

We will definitely be back for the 2hr ride next time. Can't wait!!

“Great experience!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 October 2013

It is worth it to do this trip. Knysna heads is really beautiful from any side. It is exciting to go so fast and to go that close to the rocks and caves. The weather played along and we had a wonderful experience. Unfortunately we did not see whales or dolphins but it was still worth it. Thank you Brett!

This was the best boat ride I have had in years, twin 250hp V6 outboards that propel this monster from 0-60 like a super car. Brett the skipper knows his boat and the heads. This is not for the faint hearted if the heads are rough. We had went through on a 3-4 mtr swell and I have to say there were times I had to look the other way. But the boat is made for the job and is very stable and agile. Dolphins played in the surf too which made it that bit more special. The Boat can turn on a sixpence at high speed too and the figure of 8 Brett gets it doing will make you feel like your riding a bronco machine as you hold on with your knees in the straddle seats. Give this a go you wont be disappointed. It was over all too quick for us but an adrenaline packed 40 minutes was well enjoyed.

“Fun, thrilling, simply amazing!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 July 2013

This experience has been one of the best in my life. Plenty of times I thought I was going to die, but we were always steered to safety. This was really an amazing experience, and I would pay thousands, just so that I could do it again and again and again. I highly recommend this to, well, anyone! You are guaranteed an amazing ride!

“Thanks to Knysna Rib Adventures”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 June 2013

A BIG thank you to the team of Knysna Rib Adventures for taking out the contestants of the Ultimate Braai Master Season Two, they were in-between sets and needed something fun and exciting to do...well that's what they got. A high speed adrenaline filled educational trip through the famous Knysna Heads. From the look on their faces when they came off the Rib all expectations were met.
Thanks again to Brett for his willingness and professional manner in dealing with this group last minute.
