Welcome aboard!

What is Platanna? Well, other than a rather special kind of local frog, she's also a rather special boat!

Having been serviced during the winter of 2010, she was re-launched in Stanford on September 30th, and is now on the river again. The first official booking followed the next day, and the 2010 cruising season started!

She is a 20 foot/6 metre ex-fishing boat that was re-built for the purpose of cruising the Klein River, and has the capacity to carry up to ten passengers (SAMSA Cetified).

Platanna has been cruising the Klein River for five years now, and her predecessor (also called Platanna, but now scrapped) for four years before that.

So, if you're visiting the Overberg region of the Cape, or following the Cape Whale Coast route, take a couple of hours off for a gentle cruise down the Klein River.

Feel free to bring your own picnic basket, snacks, wine, beer or whatever you want.

If you want something a bit more special, like maybe a sunset champagne cruise, contact us and we will arrange it for you!

Platanna doesn't sail to a schedule. She cruises to your time.

A standard cruise is approximately two hours long, which in calm conditions is enough time to cover the length of the river and back, a 15 kilometre round trip.

Of course, if you want to stop anywhere along the river, we can. Maybe for a swim, or something interesting happening on the river bank? It's your cruise.

The only limitations are no cruising in the dark - so if you want a late afternoon sunset cruise, it needs to start two hours before sunset for the standard cruise.
