Featherbed Co.

The Paddle Cruiser is South Africa’s only paddle-driven vessel, offering a unique and unforgettable experience on the Knysna Lagoon.

The Featherbed Company gives visitors to the Garden Route ‘an unforgettable experience on the Knysna Lagoon’.

The Lagoon, more accurately defined as an estuary, has five freshwater rivers flowing in from the surrounding Outeniqua Mountains meeting with the surge of seawater from the Indian Ocean through the mighty headlands – known as the ‘Knysna Heads’ – the grand sandstone cliffs towering above the entrance to the Knysna Lagoon.
