“Unforgettable”
Review of Raggy Charters

Raggy Charters
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed July 23, 2013

The management and staff were friendly, knowledgeable and passionate. On the cruise we hung out with a playful seal and saw a variety of bird life, everyone's favourite (I think) being the penguins. We were also fortunate enough to see 2 adult humpback whales, and follow them around for a while. I can honestly say it brought a tear to my eye to be so close to such a magnificent animal. Unforgettable experience. Thanks Raggy Charters!

Going out on one of Raggy Charter's boat trips is a great way to experience Algoa Bay's natural beauty and wildlife. On a recent trip out with them we saw an extremely large number of penguins and gannets feeding right by the boat, as well as a large group of bottlenose dolphins. The crew are friendly and go out of their way to ensure that the guests have a good experience. They also offer a little snack and fruit juice during the trip and welcome guests to join them at the yacht club restaurant for lunch after the trip. I would recommend a trip out on Raggy Charters to anyone who is visiting Port Elizabeth.

we went out expecting fishing, but got so much more. The fish was awesome, as was the wildlife and the crew! We caught our own dinner which the captain arranged to be cooked for us and we even caught sharks (which we released!), amazing experience along with seeing dolphins and penguins!

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
