Nothing to dislike
We spent 3 nights on the lagoon in a houseboat. The boat was immaculate and everything was working correctly onboard. The service from the team at Knysna houseboats was flawless, we chose to call into the base at the marina every morning to restock ice for our cooler. Whilst there and the boat was cleaned and the water and fuel topped up, it was like a floating hotel room. The boats were easy to operate and should be no problem even if you do not have any boating experience. The staff are willing to spend as much time as you need to make sure you are comfortable with the operation of the boat. Navigation of the waterway is easy as you just follow the white buoys in the middle of the channel. We spent two nights on land and three nights on the boat, the boat was by far the better experience, you can sit in a restaurant over looking a marina in most coastal towns but how often do you get to spend the night on your own boat drinking glass of wine gazing at the stars?
We loved everything about the trip,it was for our honeymoon and we will go every year for anniversary. And there was no tsunamis made......lol
It was excellent – would recommend it to anyone looking for a bit of adventure and to just relax, read books, playing cards, fishing etc... Nothing like sleeping out under the stars and hearing the gentle lapping of water against the hull of the boat when you sleep, and nowhere better then Knysna lagoon. A holiday that we won’t be forgetting anytime soon, thanks once again to Joost and his very friendly staff at Knysna Houseboats - Chris & Lyn McCarthy
