A must do at Knysna Lagoon, Thesen Islands. Its thrilling and gives you an absolute adrenalin rush. Do ask your Captain to give you the fast rounds. An amazing experience. When the boat swings over the waves, its a lot of fun.

We have been going to Knysna for many years on holiday. This time we were planning on doing a catamaran trip with the kids until we saw the Knysna Rib shooting along the lagoon and decided to go for that instead.

At R400 (about $40) per person it does seem a bit pricey but each of us agreed after having been on the trip its was worth every cent....plus some.

We had a beautiful day to go out, the high speed ride (500 hp) on the lagoon was simply exhilarating. For the first time in all the years we have gone to Knysna we went through the Heads and saw what things look like from the other side, including rare birds, hammer head sharks, caves etc. The high speed turns are really something! The g-force you experience is actually a little scary but the adrenalin rush that comes with it is great! When the pilot Brett says hold on tight, he is not joking!

The whole thing is professionally managed, exciting, safe, perfectly timed and an absolute blast. Don't worry about the money, just do it!

We thoroughly enjoyed our trip with Knysna RIB Adventures! With 500hp on a brand new boat and Brett behind the wheel we felt totally safe while doing exhilarating high speed turns, going through the Knysna heads, over the swells and touring the caves and coastline.

This adventure is well, well worth the money for people of all ages. The kids loved the speed and being in the waves and the adults really enjoyed Brett's informative comments on the surroundings, topography, animals and bird life.

We will definitely be back for the 2hr ride next time. Can't wait!!

It is worth it to do this trip. Knysna heads is really beautiful from any side. It is exciting to go so fast and to go that close to the rocks and caves. The weather played along and we had a wonderful experience. Unfortunately we did not see whales or dolphins but it was still worth it. Thank you Brett!
