Take Me To The River

Hop aboard the Lady Stanford riverboat for an iconic and tranquil river cruise that winds its way gently along the picturesque Klein River, toward the Hermanus Lagoon. Spend time on the open upper and lower decks of this eco-friendly riverboat with its quiet, four-stroke boat engines, as you watch a kaleidoscope of natural colour go by. The Klein River features more than a hundred bird species which include majestic fish eagles, a flamboyance of pink flamingos and the ever spectacular, blue crane. Keep an eye out for otters, bontebok and horses grazing on the fertile river banks, as you make your way toward the lagoon. Lady Stanford River Cruises runs daily trips for individual passengers as well as being available exclusively for private functions. The boat can comfortably accommodate 26 passengers.
