Great evening on the Indian Ocean

Booked sunset outing from Uk before we arrived in Knysna. Boat was skippered by Nick, really great few hours. Beautiful coast line. Very pleasant way to spend a few hours with sparkling wine and very good finger platter on our return to shore. If weather good definitely recommend.

It was really sailing with a lot of wind and waves on the open sea! The support on board was very very attentive! We can only recommend the excursion.
