More about Knysna

We sail the most pristine part of the Garden Route, a coastal stretch that runs from the Outeniquas to the Tsitsikamma Mountain range, of which Knysna is the heart. A town situated on the shores of a protected natural basin guarded by two huge geological formations known as the Knysna Heads. The Knysna Basin forms a perfect lake like estuary, a natural bay, and is home to our sailing vessels with the Knysna heads being our passageway to the warmer Indian Ocean. This phenomenon must be one of the most striking natural geographical features along the entire Southern African coastline. Views along this jagged edged coast include small hidden beaches bordered by indigenous fynbos and weathering sandstone formations, that have, through time, created alluring picturesque coves and mysterious stone caverns.  To complete it all, the line of forests and the blue mountains in the distance create the perfect backdrop for this remarkable vista.
