“Being on a boat that’s moving through the water, it’s so clear – everything falls in place of what’s important in life and what’s not.” – James Taylor. 

“Die dans van die flamink, die visarend se Roepstem van Afrika, ‘n visvalk op die wieke van die wind, ‘n tafereel van kleure van vere – dit is die ware wonder van die natuur.”

The 16 km 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. 

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. The Stand Up Paddle Boards, Fishing Kayaks and Rowing Dinghies are in pristine condition, meet all safety standards and life jackets are supplied. However, although training in the safe use of the equipment will be supplied there will be no supervision, guide or safety person accompanying.

A holiday at the sea, can hardly be truly fulfilling without a water adventure and a fish “braai” on the beach. Lagoon Safari 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
