Valentine’s weekend on the water!

Sometimes roses and chocolates just don’t quite say “I want to share every special moment with you”, like a romantic weekend on a houseboat does!

Treat that special person to 2 nights of romance and tranquility on the beautiful Kowie River in Port Alfred.

Catch up, reconnect and find each other again whilst surrounded by nothing but the beauty of nature, and a comfortable houseboat equipped with everything you need to relax and enjoy each other’s company.

Our Couple’s Getaway package for only R2900 includes:

  • Accommodation for 2 for 2 nights,
  • A snack basket
  • A bottle of champagne

*Package excludes fuel consumption, temp skippers license and R2000 fuel/security deposit.

Contact us now to book. First come first serve basis.

Home Away From Home

Our Houseboats in Port Alfred are your home away from home, complete with a fitted kitchen (we call it a galley), fully-functional bathroom, built-in CD player and, last but not least, a Weber braai for the one that didn’t get away…

Kitchen utensils, crockery, cutlery, electric fridge, gas stove, geyser and bedding are all included, so it truly will feel like home.

The boat comfortably sleeps 4 adults and a child on 2 double beds and a cushioned couch. Or, bring a sleeping bag and sleep under the stars on the tanning deck!

Day trips allow for up to 7 passengers, so bring everyone including granny. Just leave the dog at home.

A skipper can be arranged on weekends when possible, enquire in advance.
