Paddle Cruiser - Lunch Time Cruise


Activity Description

The Paddle Cruiser is South Africa’s only paddle-driven vessel. She departs daily from the Cruise Café jetty, offering a unique and unforgettable experience on the Knysna Lagoon. This 21 meter long vessel, weighing in at 126 tons is licensed to carry 180 passengers.
A popular hotspot along the famed Garden Route, Knysna still maintains its small-town charm amidst all the exciting attractions on offer here. Boasting striking views from all directions, this seaside town offers scenic adventures to enjoy these sights, such as this boat trip and food experience.
The Paddle Cruiser is a fully enclosed, majestic floating restaurant offering daily a-la-carte cruises and a sunset buffet dinner cruise. With a full bar on board enjoying cocktails and oysters whilst cruising to the Heads makes this cruise a memorable family experience.

Customer Reviews

Service was amazing . Staff are very friendly . And the cruiser was very clean and neat . Will do it again . - Joanna Prinsloo

We have always wanted to experience the Paddle Cruiser, it was everything we expected and more. Definitely worth the wait! - Thozeka Sikali & Dorah Manewil - Visit Knysna

I never participate in your Cruiser due to your un-organization. When you are not working please specified on your webb and please make sure someone attend to answer calls that are coming in or reach to call peoples that are paying you on line for the cruise. I paid you on line and the money went trough but your phone lines they was no one to answer back and your internet system not even to reply back and confirm the booking. What a business is this your. I want my money back please. - Ladislas Luhembwe Mutondo

We had a short experience on the Paddle Cruiser as part of an educational group. Our welcome and safety introduction were well presented, and the departure from the dock was efficient. We were a little disappointed to only go as far as the Brenton-on-Lake turning, and not even as far as the Featherbed dock, which would have seemed an obvious place to turn so that guests could see the facilities, and be informed about the walk, etc. Thank you for the refreshments, which were delightful. - Mike & Sue Mills - Belvidere Manor

It was a great pleasure to be on the paddle cruise will definitely do it again .Michelle &Jackson - Michelle Lencoe & Jackson- Lithemba Crafts And Tours
