It’s timeluxury yacht.

In Knysna we will meet you on Thesen Island in front of the beautiful Sirocco restaurant, from where the crew will take you on an exciting sailing adventure on the Knysna Lagoon, through the Knysna heads and along the beautiful Knysna coastline on our lovely yacht called Ocean Rhythm

Charters are usually very relaxed and calm, spent lazing on the deck with a glass of bubbly…. For those looking for a little more fun, take a 3m dive from the coach roof and snorkel the old shipwreck. There are the occasional days where the wind in the sails can get the adrenaline pumping too.

With so much on offer, Ocean Sailing Charters provides the ultimate way to spend a summer’s day.

When conditions allow, we anchor for a quick swim or snorkel to explore the old shipwreck in the protection of Robberg Peninsula. It was a Portuguese fishing vessel that hit the rocks out at whale rock. Fortunately all the crew survived.
