A great adventure on a fast jet boat. Brett was an awesome skipper too! Saw a few seals in the water and also a good look at the cave systems. I would recommend this to anyone visiting Knysna.

Hi, we recommend the 60 min Trip and no, this does not replace an actual walk in the Heads as the trip is water-based. We can be more accurate with our recommendation if you tell us when you intend to visit?
