Sailing in Knysna

Sailing in Knysna is easily one of the best ways to get a truly unbelievable Garden Route experience. There’s really nothing quite like making your way towards historic Knysna Heads by boat and looking back onto the majestic town of Knysna. The view you get from the bay is the same iconic imagery you see on almost every postcard and documentary. This is most definitely the perfect place to get the ultimate holiday snapshot.

The Knysna Estuary provides an extensive stretch of water for sailors to enjoy. Not only is water plentiful, it also provides some unique challenges taxing the skill of some of the most experienced sailors and providing a bundle of fun.

The Knysna Estuary, surrounded by hills, being tidal requires local knowledge if you are to master the channels at low tide while fighting an ever changing wind, not to mention avoiding the pleasure vessels that ply the waters.

What better way to experience the fairest Cape than by sailboat? Enjoy the sun on your face and wind in your hair while you sail along the rugged South African coastline.
