    1. Good morning Graham.

      When did you want to go?

      Our current rate is R2100.00 per night for 4 adults up until the 9th of December 2018. After that the rate changes to R2700.00 per night. We offer special deal out of season for week night stays. Also, do you have a skippers license?

      Please note that we require a refundable deposit of R2000.00. You will get this back on the day you return the boat, less your fuel consumption and providing the boat is in good standing.

      Best Regards
