We were in group of nine with three children aged 3 to 6 years old. Skipper was excellent and we loved the way he handled the speed, never neglecting safety but keeping it fun and exciting.

If you are looking to get a real hit of adrenaline this is a must! Where others may want a more serene approach to whale and dolphin watching one can request this service from excellent guides at KRA.

Such great and friendly service while getting registered and there were 19 of us rugby players from Johannesburg at once for the ride. The ride itself was just such a blast and safety was never neglected from start to finish. And once we got out onto the water it was honestly just exhilarating and breathtaking once the views were in... More

I'm very happy that we picked up full speed on many occassions, but unfotunately the sea was very calm this day. I recomend... More

Donovan was our captain for the day and made it a funfilled thrilling experience. With 2x300hp enjins and the most beautiful scenery in the world - you cant go wrong. Donovan was very responsible but also knew when to let the engines do their thing! 12/10 for the experience - can recommend the experience!
