boat cruises at Cederberg Ridge Wilderness Lodge, waterskiing watersports on clanwilliam dam
The Clanwilliam dam provides a stunning setting for our boat cruises and water-based activities. These come into their own in the hot summer months from November to February.  With the mountain as your backdrop, soak up the fiery sky at dusk on our 1½ hour sundowner cruise. We offer this typically every other evening in the summer months.

Alternatively enjoy a leisurely morning of boating with a refreshing swim in the clean lake water. This includes  ’beach’ picnic snacks and drinks. Why not try a spot of tubing if you want to get your adrenalin racing? We offer this once every 3 days or so. And more if it is popular.

Private Boat Excursions (extra cost)

Depending on boat availability, we may be able to offer fishing or private water-skiing excursions.  But this will be an additional cost as it's a private excursion. 

Private fishing trips would be for the indigenous and rare Clanwilliam yellow-tail or bass fishing. Private water-skiing can include learning to waterski as well.

Note: If you would like a private boating excursion, please let us know ahead of time. Then we will book out the skipper and the boat. It is not always possible, especially at short notice. As we use our boat for our scheduled boating excursions as well.
