Vessels/ Boats

hippo & croc boat cruise st lucia south africa

Our two vessels have specifically been designed for the conditions on the St Lucia Estuary (S.A's first world heritage site) only accommodating 15 passengers. Smaller in size in comparison however with service and sightings in mind our vessels are able to venture shallower than any other vessel on the system. This ensures that you will be able to get up close to some truly spectacular sightings especially the Hippos. 

All skippers have undergone various courses and are also in possession of passenger endorsements. They have more than enough years of experience out on the water and you are in safe hands. Just don't forget your camera's and binoculars for those special sightings.
