Customer Reviews

A lovely experience with spectacular views and birdlife sightings. Thanks a stack! - Ingrid Conradie

We received a very personal service as we were the only two people on that river cruise. We went up river first under the new and old road bridges to see the bird life. Then down river to land and take a short walk on the dunes. All a very enjoyable experience. - Martyn Langford

We really had an asewome time! The staff is very friendly and really takes his time, we would definitely recommend this activity! where you can relax and observe the birds. Climbing the sand dunes was a challenge but really worth it, what a great view! Thanks a lot. Cedric from Belgium - Cedric Feyaerts

My family and I had an experience of a lifetime. This was all made possible by a fantastic guide named Jeff, who assisted my elderly mother onto and off the ferry with jokes and kindness. I do not believe it would have been so memorable if not for him. The scenery and information was breath taking. I would highly recommend this activity to everybody. It really is something to experience. Only criticism would have to be that there are no refreshments available on the cruise, which is rather long and one does get thirsty. Overall I would give you a 9 out of 10. Thanks again Jeff. - Marlene Morison

The Cruise was fantastic again! A must see and experience when in the Port Elizabeth area. We have been several times for just the cruise and also for the sandboarding, we are never disappointed! - James Wyatt
