The Paddle Cruiser - Dinner 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.

The charming town of Knysna is renowned for its striking setting. Ideally located along the famed Garden Route, this small town boasts exciting boat trips, outdoor fun, family activities and curio shops to browse, while weary adventurers and shoppers can take a break to enjoy the fresh seafood and other culinary fare.
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, sundowners and oysters whilst cruising to the Heads at twilight and returning under the twinkling stars whilst dining from the buffet makes this an unforgettable dining experience.
