BOATING AND SAILING

The bay is the perfect place for Hobie Cat sailing, surfing, wave- skiing and bathing. Power boats can be launched from Central Beach. Contact the Ski Boat Club +27 44 533 2941. Yachts can be launched from Hobie Beach while the Keurbooms River is ideal for water-skiing and canoeing. At the end of the day, enjoy a sunset cruise on the river or the sea.

Contact Nature Conservation +27 44 533 2125 for more details or if you would like to hire canoes for the canoe trail and overnight stay in the Whiskey Creek hut. The canoe trail will interest nature lovers and bird watchers alike and canoes leave the river slipway, situated next to the N2 bridge that crosses the river at the Stanley Island turn-off.

WHALE WATCHING

The marine life is spectacular and of course there are the whales. Take a cruise in the bay and get close to the giants of the ocean. Ocean Blue is a licensed SABBWWA permit holder and is allowed to approach whales from 50 metres instead of the usual 300 metres. If the whales are feeling friendly, you’ll have the experience of a lifetime.
