Experience the spectacular natural beauty of the Hermanus Lagoon (Klein River Lagoon) nestled between the mountain range, with Babylonstoring and Maanschynkop towering 1 km above you, and Walker Bay, from the placid waters of the Lagoon. With our birdwatching, breakfast runs, sunset and other water safaris on board Flamboyance, our 7 meter Butt Cat.
The 16km long lagoon (up to 2 km wide) and river are a haven for more than 120 bird species, including the majestic African Fish Eagle, flamboyant malachite kingfisher, the shy African spoonbill, flocks of the Greater and Lessen Flamingos, and many many more. Sunsets over the waters of the lagoon, over the indigenous coastal forests and the mountain range, are as good as it gets. We also venture to the nearly inaccessible and pristine eastern shores of the lagoon.
The razzle dazzle camouflaged Flambouyance, was designed to handle extremely rough sea conditions, and now specifically adapted from which the lagoon, and its birdlife paradise can be explored in comfort, luxury and complete safety. Flamboyance is licensed with the South African Maritime Safety Authority to operate as a commercial passenger vessel for a maximum of 12 passengers, as well as a skipper and first mate, on the Lagoon (and the sea.)
A holiday at the sea, can hardly be truly fulfilling without a water adventure on a boat and a fish “braai” on the beach. Flamboyance offers the first and De Vette Mossel Beach Seafood Restaurant, our departure point, excels in the latter. Consider combining these two superb truly bucket list experiences. www.devettemosselhermanus.co.za
