This is surely the best experience we have had our entire holiday. We were treated to high speed boat maneuvers, a spectacular never to be forgotten trip through the Heads, spending close on an half an hour with probably a 1000 dolphins a visit to a cave and to top it all of a pitstop at the beach bar. We will surely return next holiday! Brett, the skipper's, knowledge of Knysna, boats and people is second to none and we felt save in his hands at 90 km/h! If you are in the Garden Route, this is something not to be missed!

The dolphins and brides whales en route were certainly very special on this perfect summers day in Knysna and passing the famous classic 42ft racing yacht SV Mercury with Garden Route Sailing Adventures. Thanks for the review and we hope to see you back next year.

Anyone visiting the Garden Route should put this on their to-do-list! Exhilarating at times yet still giving you the opportunity to appreciate the spectacular coast line!

Me and my wife went on our honeymoon this December and we always wanted to learn how to dive.

On arrival we got a friendly welcome from the team and they were very professional.

In the paddi beginner course they explained all the do's and don'ts of diving in a very easy to understand way.After the theory we were taken to the pool where the instructor showed me and my wife how all the equipment works and we practiced for quite a while untill the instructor was confident that we knew how everything works.

We where taken to the one location where you can see the sea horses.We did our dive and we saw plenty of life under the water.

Me and my wife will recommend garden route diving adventures to any one who wishes to learn how to dive.

Probably the best experience we have had. Excitement is the best way to explain it. Professional, safe and the other way to see the Knysna lagoon as well as the Knysna Heads from the open ocean. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

Coming from Jersey, we really enjoyed this boat ride. Brett the skipper not only knows his boat, but he conveys a level of confidence in safety from the outset and is really insightful about the beautiful coastline. We would recommend this trip to those who enjoy being on the sea - Brett will take the time to understand your requirements and will tailor the ride to suite - very fast and furious with plenty of high speed turns to a more docile ride - whatever, you are sure to enjoy it.
