Paddle Cruiser


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

We had an absolutely amazing experience on the Padel Cruiser. From doing the bookings up till we got off the boat everything was handled in so much detail. Our biggest thanks to Ulricke and the staff that went out of their way to assist us to make our day so special. It's a pity that there isn't more events held on the padel cruiser. - Bianka

Ah the Paddlecruiser, what an experience! It it a dreamy trip that fills you with nostalgia for a bygone era. Goodness we loved it, really wish it was longer as it is pure bliss travelling on this unique vessel. The food was delicious and the service from the staff outstanding. Special thanks to Margaret Hall who so kindly and patiently assisted with the booking when your website was under construction. We had a lovely trip and would absolutely do The Paddle Cruiser again when in Knysna, it is a must do. Thanks for the great memories. - Wayne

It was great thank you - Schalk

It was an ok experience, lunch also ok, coffeeshop-uitbater bad, Therese were machines for espresso but they didn't work! - Pieter

we did not get to go as there were not enough people. it was very disappointing as we drove from Herolds Bay with friends from JHB we were only told that the cruise was cancelled once we got there, we had booked and paid during the week. a call or message from Featherbed half an hour before departure would have been appreciated as we wasted time and petrol - Diane
