Knysna Yacht Club

Knysna Yacht Club is situated in the centre of the Garden Route - midway between Cape Town and Port Elizabeth. The Knysna Yacht Club is internationally renowned for its hospitality and facilities.

Visiting yachts, after passing through the Knysna Heads, have a safe navigable lagoon where they will find convenient mooring whilst visiting Knysna and the surrounding exceptionally beautiful Garden Route areas.

The name Knysna is a Khoi word that has been translated to mean "place of wood", "fern leaves" and "straight down" an obvious reference to the famous Knysna Heads.

The Heads must be one of the most eye-catching geological features along the southern African coastline. They flank a deep channel through where the sea pours in, flooding the wide lagoon at the mouth of the Knysna River.

Founded in 1910, Knysna Yacht Club is well-known for its hospitality and world-class facilities. Sailors passing through the Heads have a safe navigable lagoon in which to moor their yachts while visiting Knysna and the surrounding region. The lagoon is a playground for holiday makers where one can enjoy water sports, sailing, sunset cruises and lagoon fishing.
