What an exhilarating ride on such a fast and well maintained boat and a knowledgeable skipper. We saw dolphins, sun fish and wales.

Really enjoyed our 1 hour trip. The guide had really useful information and controlled the rib really well.

We were told to signal if at any time we felt unsafe, but we all loved the rush of the speed, bumps and loops and circles!

Got to see a few seals and learn more about the caves and wildlife in Knysna. Would recommend.

October 16 we enjoyed nice wheather however it was quite windy. Despite there was only one other couple we left for the trip towards the lagune and the ocean. With 90km/h full speed it was great fun! After trying to hit the ocean we faced some inpressive waves and the captain deciced wisely to return rapidly :) In stead of exploring the ocean we did some fast turns which was great. After half an hour of great fun we returned. Because the wheater circumstances did’nt allow us to explore the ocean we did’nt have to pay for the full journey which was fair.

Knysna RIB Adventures thanks a lot for the great fun we had!!

A fabulous trip in the rib boat around the harbour and out into the ocean. We managed to spot wales in the distance, saw seals playing and a massive sun fish floating not far from the RIB.
Our guide was extremely informative and friendly. He talked to us about the heads and showed us the devastation caused by the fire over the summer.
I would have liked it to have been a bit more daring, I’ve been on two previous RIB boat excursions and found that they were alot more adrenaline provoking. However, there were a few children on the boat so I wonder whether this is why it was slightly more tame.

We were looking at boats trips and chanced across the booth for this place.
How fortunate we were.
The SA guy who runs it was so polite and not at all pushy.
We were going to do 30 Mins but realised from other reviews that 60 mins was better.
A great trip:
Some tight turns - everyone young and old loved it
Informative as slowed to be told about features / the local area.
Asked us to keep our eyes out for sea life and we spotted a whale! Fantastic as we stopped off to see it surface several times.
Such a great trip.
