OCEAN SAILING

It is no secret that The Garden Route is the most popular holiday destination in the country.

It’s easy to see why, since there’s something on offer for everyone. Nature lovers come for the exquisite scenery and wildlife, families come for the peace and quiet and the fantastic beaches, and the younger generation for the night life and varied culture and cuisine.

The Garden Route has an oceanic climate, with mild to warm summers, and mild to cool winters. According to the Guinness Book of Records, the Garden Route has the mildest climate in South Africa and the second mildest climate in the world after Hawaii. This in itself makes it a sought after destination, all year round.

SURROUNDINGS

Plettenberg Bay offers a truly exceptional beauty and diversity of animals. The seal colony of about 8000 offers true entertainment in itself. Come experience why Plett is the playground of the rich and famous, from a different perspective!

The Robberg nature reserve is a protected area.

It is one of South Africa’s most interesting, beautiful and diverse reserves and is also a national monument because of the fascinating Stone Age caves , which offer a glimpse into our ancient past. Rocks from this region date back 120 million years . The reserve is famed for its flourishing Cape fur seal colony, whales, dolphins, coastal bird life and unique fynbos. The marine reserve also extends 1.8km offshore, providing protection to a range of vulnerable fish species. See our sightings page for a list of some of the many species you may encounter.

GARDEN ROUTE – OCEAN RHYTHM

Launched in the beginning of 2007, Ocean Rhythm introduced us to many happy sailing hours and life on the water. Her berth is in the Knysna waterfront quays, as there are no facilities in Plett. In season, she lies on anker in Central Beach, Plettenberg Bay in the Garden Route.

 

It’s time for a magical escape on a luxury yacht.

In Plettenberg Bay we greet you at Central Beach, where we take you on an exciting boat trip on our tender, through the waves to meet Ocean Rhythm and her crew.

Charters are usually very relaxed and calm, spent lazing on the deck with a glass of bubbly…. For those looking for a little more fun, take a 3m dive from the coach roof or snorkel the old ship wreck. There are the occasional days where the wind in the sails can get the adrenaline pumping too.

With so much on offer, Ocean Sailing Charters provides the ultimate way to spend a summer’s day.

Unwind on board our luxury yacht as you savor the last warm rays of the setting sun, sipping on a glass of bubbly and enjoying the magic of the bay. Spot our Marine Giants while tanning on trampolines, put out a line to see what bites, or take a snorkel at the wreck.
