Hi, I'm Deon and me and my family went out on a boat cruise on Raggy Charters and it was an awesome experience especially going to the islands and viewing all the dolphins, penguins and sealife. It was a great experience for us and we will do it tomorrow again. Lloyd was a very friendly chap and explains everything to you about the sea and the islands. My child learnt a lot and we saw a seal catching a octopus that was real interesting. The trip was long and worth every bit and afterwards we had lunch at the Yacht Club, their food is divine. Thanks again Lloyd for your hospitatity from deon, karen and dantre, we made a friend for life

Port Elizabeth has one of the most magnificent bays in the world, oozing with sea life and for a close up experience of whales, Dolphins, penguins, sea birds etc., you can do no better than take a trip with Lloyd Edwards "RAGGY CHARTERS". Lloyd is one of the most professional and knowledgeable tour guides you will ever meet and offers a whole range of trips that ensure you come face to face with PE' sea creatures. His rates are most reasonable and his photography world class. Our trip was so memorable that we plan another when the Southern Right whale makes an appearance. Michael J Floyd

I'm Hattie, 14 years old. I live in Port Alfred SA and it was totally awesome seeing all the pretty dolphins, especially the babies. And the penguins were so cute - smile and wave!

A friend of mine recently won a trip for two on Raggy Charters and I was even luckier to be asked to join her. What an incredible prize! We were met by Lloyd the Skipper and another family and all climbed aboard the boat to set off into the ocean. Lloyd was an excellent host/skipper and very knowlegable, there was no question the he couldn't answer at length. We had an amazing view from the front of boat and the feeling of being out in the bay was incredible.

Within 30 mins we were joined by a school of dolphin who swam alongside our boat, so close we could reach out and touch them. We made our way to St Croix island, also known as Penguin Island, where Lloyd provided snacks and educated us on the penguin conservation he is involved with. It was inspiring to meet somebody as passionate about a cause as he is. At St Croix island we were surrounded by thousands of dolphin. No amount of pictures and words can describe the feeling of being completely surrounded by these beauties. Although we didn't spot any whales, the trip was still one to remember. I highly recommed this trip to anyone that may be thinking of it. Huge thanks to Lloyd and Algo Fm for a wonderful day out.
