I'm on a Boat! (+video) - A Sunset Boat Cruise down Sunday's River, South Africa

Hey friends :)

Anyone who knows me well knows I'm obsessed with boats and boat-life and have often said I'll buy a yacht before I buy a house. So it was only fitting that for my last birthday as a Port Elizabeth resident, I take some friends out on a river cruise to soak in the sunset.

The Setting:

Sunday's River. The small town of Colchester is about half an hour North of PE and is home to some magnificent sand dunes where I once wiped out sandboarding. It was awesome.

The Vessel:

The Maggie May Party Boat. Owned and operated by KB of Sundays River Adventures (who also provide the sandboarding and wakeboarding in the area, it's lit), the Maggie May is a double-decker houseboat that holds 2-16 people. For 2 and a half hours, at 4 possible times of the day (sunrise, morning, afternoon and sunset), cruisers are treated to some amazing scenery around the river banks including those crazy dunes I talked about, several species of birds, some interesting local houses and even herds of cattle. Yup.

The Squad:

These clowns who came out for my birthday, humour and insightful conversation in tow.


The damage:

The cruise costs R350 (~ 26USD!) per person, with an optional additional R60 (~ 4USD) for snack platters. You can of course take your own food and drinks, which we did.

The conversations and subsequent inside jokes are priceless ;)

KB even hooked up these souvenir bottles filled with sand from the surrounding dunes for my birthday and went over the cruise time for us. Legend.

Souvenir: A sand-filled bottle for each of us!

And that was it! You can have all this too for much less money than even I expected. Are you a fan of boats? Where would you like to cruise?
