I would recommend this fishing trip for anybody. I had a wonderful trip!!! See you in December 2016!!! I found the trip was handled by professionals. The red tide was here when I did my trip, and we got fish. Garden Route fishing adventures id worth a visit.

We have operated in the area for over 30 years and understand the local conditions very well. Safety is pour primary concern and we can confirm that the conditions on the day were safe and suitable for the deep sea fishing charter. I personally advised you that taking young children to sea was not recommended and that lagoon fishing would... More

Well worth it. My husband went during our December holiday. They caught quite a bit of fish and he really enjoyed the experience. We would definitely recommend them. Professional, friendly and very safety conscious. If I may just mention: 1. The skipper should think about getting some else to do the bookings / admin as he was constantly on his... More

One of the highlights of our Knysna visit. The skipper of the boat makes any wave jump or turn perfectly safe with his noticeable experience of the sea. Fantastic experience

Good fun, with a great focus on safety. Despite a nasty bout of sea sickness (it happens), we were still able bring in a great catch. Will I do it again? Yup, most definitely. Thanks to Nikki and the folks at Garden Route Boating Adventures.

Having investigated this situation the facts are somewhat misrepresented and unfortunately distorted. Despite time changes made by yourself and unsuitable sea conditions at that time, your refund was processed. We do hope you will give diving in Knysna another chance as the beauty of this estuary and coastal reefs are really worth it! More

Our skipper was incredibly knowledgable and had our safety in hand. Even though the sea was rough the day we booked to go out, he offered us the choice to continue or not. I loved it the trip and would go again or recommend it to others. Well worth the cost.
