Spirit of Tsitsikamma - Boat rides
It is with great joy that we can announce that the "Spirit of Tsitsikamma" Boat Operation on the Storms River is back in operation.
SANParks is operating the boat cruise from the Storms River Mouth Rest Camp (Tsitsikamma Section) of the Garden Route National Park.
The trip up the otherwise inaccessible Storms River Gorge gives visitors the opportunity to view the gorge firsthand and to marvel at one of nature’s many wonders. Huge caverns are interspersed on either side of the river, some which extend upwards for 20 meters, providing a habitat for rare Bat species.
The "Sprit of Tsitsikamma" can accommodate groups of up to 22 and runs every 45 minutes. It departs from the old jetty below the suspension bridge, which can be reached after a half an hour walk along the Mouth Trail. This 800m boardwalk winds its way along the coastal forest, ending at the suspension bridge below the Khoisan Cave. Tour operators should budget about two hours in time for this activity.
