Sail in style on the Knysna Lagoon into the mesmerising Headlands.

The catamaran is licensed to motor sail through the Heads into the Indian Ocean with a maximum of 12 passengers. If we have more than 12 passengers onboard, we will linger in the Heads long enough for you to take in the beauty of the landscape & Indian Ocean. It’s the perfect photo opportunity.

Sailing with your experienced skipper is an exclusive and safe way to enjoy the splendour of the Lagoon. Our guests often have sightings of dolphins, seals, birds and whales during season is a bonus. Take in the magnificent views and enjoy great music on the way back. Return to the vibrant Knysna Waterfront with all it’s boutique shops and a selection of three top-10 restaurants after the sail. 

Order a delicious anti-pasta platter and a glass of sparkling wine to accompany you on your sunset cruise. (Pre-booking important as we need time to order the platters). Sailing & Picnic, they go hand-in-hand!
