Customer Reviews

Staff amazing Canoes great - Samantha Willan


Very impressive! Loved every second I spent on the river with my girlfriend! - Kimosabi


Excellent service from the staff, but just a shame that the river is polluted and a little smelly as a result. Mother Nature's beauty shines through, but we really need to clean up our act as Durbanites - the public and municipality. It is a wonderful experience, especially if we can get it cleaner. - Tasmi Quazi


was a great first time experience and will be looking to do it more in the future - nishel Havanchal


The service was excellent. There was an assistant who walked with us to the canoes and the canoeing instructor was very helpful and informative. My only criticisms are for the river itself which is very dirty and there are dunes under water in certain sections of the river that suddenly stops the boat from moving any further. - Veneshree Gavendor
