About Springtide Charters

Against a backdrop of exceptional beauty, sailing across Knysna’s expansive liquid landscape on Springtide Charter’s sleek 50ft mono hull yacht is a truly memorable experience. With its dazzling palette of blues, it is a scene perfectly designed by nature for a life aquatic.

The Knysna estuary stands apart from many others in the country because of the fact that its wide mouth is permanently open to the sea. The twice daily tidal dance that plays out between the Knysna heads has resulted in a rich, wondrous marine environment of spectacular biodiversity, perfect for sailing and nature enthusiasts alike. Whilst harnessing the power of the wind and dwarfed by the awesome grandeur of the Knysna headlands, our yacht sails out to sea and moves parallel to the coastline.

Departing daily from the popular Knysna Waterfront, Springtide Charters offers a variety of different sailing charter options. Our highly experienced crew will take to the helm so you can relax and take in the splendour of our rugged coastline; sailing, salt air and scenery all an exhilarating combination. Once back into the calmer waters of our lagoon, guests have the option to feast on platters of Mediterranean delicacies and sip on delicious South African bubbly.
