Customer Reviews

I love it,u were on time and very friendly.we enjoyed - Patience Mkhwanazi

What had an amazing time during our trip along the river mouth at Cannonville/Colchester !!! It was only me and my family on-board, so we were really fortunate to have the captain all to ourselves. Les provided us with stories, insights and information as far as went. It was stunning. We also walked among the dunes which had breathtaking views from the top. Les - you are a wonderful person. Thanks for the treat!!!! - Anton Hyman

Stunning! Loved the experience. So peaceful. Les and his family were very friendly and helpful. Wish we could've gone upriver more though - Michelle Hardy-Berrington

The captain was extremely kind, took time to explain the bird life, key features and is very knowledgeable. It is more like he does this for a passion than for money. This was a very great experience. Great views and great conversation, epic. - Themba Thabethe 067 417 2022

We had a wonderful scenic cruise on the Sundays River. The entire trip was handled in a very relaxed and yet professional manner. We were provided with information with regards to the historical as well ecological history. It was such a relaxing and beautiful outing, that the allocated time of two and a half hours just went past too soon. We saw quite a number of birds, including the Goliath Heron and the Giant Kingfisher. I can recommend this scenic river cruise with utmost confidence. - Elbeth Melville 072 483 0468
