Posted by Leon.

Make it all about your Dad this Father's Day.
When staying in Mossel Bay, you can treat your father to some of the most exciting activities on offer in Mossel Bay. Your dad definitely deserves to be spoiled. Here are our top six recommendations.

1. Deap Sea Fishing Adventures

For deep sea fishing in Mossel Bay there is no team better than GoFish Mossel Bay Deepsea Fishing Charters. A fleet of 2 Butt Cat fishing charter boats, SAMSA safety registered, operate from the Mossel Bay fishing harbour when the weather allows. They normally leave early in the morning for fishing trips (night fishing trips are also available) and have excellent catch rates of a wide variety of fish species. Their fishing charter boats are fully equipped with the best gear and the skippers have years of experience fishing the banks and reefs in the Mossel Bay and Stilbaai areas.


2. Quadbiking

Experience an unforgettable quad biking adventure with a guided tour around our 5km track. For your convenience, all our quads have an electric start and equipped with automatic gearboxes. There is no shifting, except if you need to go in reverse. We will provide you with detailed driving instructions. Hold on tight as you ride across sandy tracks, sending you bumping and shaking. Absolute beginner or experienced rider. First-timers are always welcome (every experience comes with a quick introduction and safety lesson), as are quad biking veterans looking for a relaxing ride.No matter who you are, where you’re coming from or where you’re going, quad biking is an absolute must.


3. Mossel Bay Helicopter Trips

Great White Shark Flights

Get the chance to see Great White sharks in the ocean from a helicopter flying over the ocean. Those who are lucky might get the chance to see whales as well. During this flight, clients will have a once in a lifetime experience that they will forever cherish in their memories. The closeness of the Great White sharks to the beaches is something worth seeing. 99% guaranteed to see GWS.


1-Hour Flights

Clients will take-off at either the Mossel Bay Helicopters Heli pad on Bergsig or the Hartenbos helicopter site to Knysna. The helicopter will fly along the coastline over Klein-Brak, Groot-Brak, Glentana, Wilderness, Sedgefield, Buffels Bay, to Knysna heads where the pilot will turn and fly over the beautiful Knysna river back to Hartenbos.
