More about Sailing Yacht Knysna

If you love sailing, this experience offers you a little taste of everything. From the calm waters of the lagoon, through the magnificent Knysna Heads and on to the vast expanse of the open ocean, you and your family can enjoy many different aspects of a day at sea with our highly experienced crew.

This rare opportunity to combine lagoon and sea sailing means you can feel the rush of the wind in the sails and perhaps even see dolphins and whales, and also float merrily along on the tranquil lagoon, enjoying the view. This sailing experience is weather dependent and booking is essential.

Opinions On Sailing Yacht Knysna

What the locals say about Sailing Yacht Knysna.

Michal Bachan

Excellent crew and fantastic experience.

John Stallard

Perfect weather, friendly crew and a lovely way to spend a couple of hours away from the holiday crowds that were gathering in Knysna :-)

Nick Ghelakis

Brilliant experience! Would definitely do it again - thank you very much!

Vernon Berry

My wife and I have been living in Knysna for 12years and never been out to sea. Eventually we built up the courage to go sailing and are disappointed that we waited so long. But now, after having such a great experience and feeling totally safe on your lovely yacht with experienced skipper and crew, we can't wait to take a longer trip. We believe everyone should experience the joy of sailing.


You’ll discover Knysna on the Garden Route; it’s charmingly set between the Knynsa Lagoon, Indian Ocean and the Knysna forest.
