The estuary cruiser and her high-speed tender at Umzimkulu Adrenalin in Port Shepstone

Cruise up the estuary looking out for wildlife, and learn all about the estuary and its vitally important biological functions. From a lecture based on Prof Anthony Turton’s narrative regarding the importance of this particular free-flowing river.

Very interesting stuff!

Bring…

Bring your camera and/or binoculars to really live, and relive, the moment. Hat and sun protection.

And a fishing rod! You might even catch your lunch whilst trolling a lure behind the boat as we go.

Look out for…

Otters: there is a whole family of these guys terrorising the fish up and down the estuary all day long

Fish eagles: our breeding pair recently had triplets!

Turtles: all the species use the river to rid themselves of parasites in the upper reaches where the water is fresh

Sharks: swimming in this river is not recommended

Etc: birds fight for the skies above all day long. There are weaver colonies. Mullet jumping for joy. Monitor lizards. And some incredibly cool and untouched coastal forest vegetation.

Safety

The trip is completely safe and we have life jackets for everyone. And all required safety equipment.

There is NO going in the water whatsoever!
