What a fantastic experience. Gentle cruise up the Sundays River. Even got to see fish jumping out of the river. Then the back breaking walk up the huge dune followed by the adrenaline surge of sand boarding down!! one of the more memorable things we've done while visiting the PE area. Our Capt was very patient, safety conscious and accommodating. great experience. - LEON RAMRAJ

My guests really enjoyed the trip...and those who participated in the sand sledding loved it. I walked to the high dune with the father who was delighted with the experience and views. - Azifani Tours. 341 368 7953 Cell: 083 456 3292. Port Elizabeth. Tracey Andrew
