On a beautiful winter's day, while on holiday in Knysna, we decided to hire a boat on the Keurbooms River near Plettenberg Bay. The day was balmy and there was no wind - perfect! If you are planning to do this in winter, make sure your timing is right - go between 10h00 - 15h00 otherwise the river will be in shade and it will get very cold! You can hire the boats from the Angling Club - as you leave Plettenberg Bay and travel toward The Craggs, you will see the Angling Club on the right hand side just before the river. Park at the Angling Club and there is a kiosk where you can hire the boats. The price was R400 for 4 hours (plenty of time). The boats can hold no more than 6 people and are certainly not speedboats, but the speed at which it travels ensures that you can enjoy the beautiful scenery of the river. No experience with boats is necessary - the engine is very easy to operate (our teenage daughters did most of the driving!!). The trip up the river takes you past the campsite and through some of the most beautiful scenery in the world. There are beaches along the way where you can stop and swim or picnic. Remember to pack towels and bathing costumes so you can do this.
All in all a wonderful experience to do either as a family or with a group of friends and a lovely way to spend 4 hours of total relaxation.
